The strategies used to achieve these goals will be shifted towards influencing positive decisions within the private sector as a partner in maximizing opportunities throughout economic sectors.

This service plan also directly supports the government’s commitment to sustainability principles through supporting integration of economic, environmental and social objectives/values.
