Land Acknowledgement Centre Wellington

We are meeting on lands that have been home to Indigenous nations since time immemorial. We acknowledge we are on the treaty lands and territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, as well as the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee.

With increasing encroachment by non-Indigenous settlers, in the area now known as the Township of Centre Wellington, the Mississaugas could not continue their traditional lifestyle and retreated to villages along the Credit River, eventually settling in the Grand River Valley. The Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation uphold their Treaty Rights within our jurisdiction.

Today, the Township of Centre Wellington remains home to Indigenous people from across Turtle Island. We are grateful to have the opportunity to share and respect Mother Earth and are committed to building constructive and cooperative relationships with Indigenous nations.

2019-2022 Strategic Plan

The strategic plan declares what Council is trying to achieve, and invites residents, businesses and community organizations to get on board and help Council to achieve its objectives. It makes transparent not only what services and assets are desirable but also the financial obstacles to potentially expanding services and infrastructure. As each new term of Council begins, Council and staff review the key priorities and initiatives that will guide the Township's work plan for the coming four years.

Council unanimously endorsed the 2019-2022 Strategic Plan on June 24, 2019.  The approved Strategic Plan goals are as follows:
1. Strong Local Economy 
2. Active and Caring Community 
3. Healthy Growth 
4. Safe & Well-Maintained Roads and Infrastructure 
5. Good Financial Management 
6. Good Government
