Laurentian University selects StrategyCorp as Strategic Plan Consultant

Canadian firm engaged to support planning process

(May 4, 2023) - The upcoming strategic planning process at Laurentian University will benefit from an experienced Canadian partner as the University has selected StrategyCorp to assist in the process.

This critical planning process will set a foundation for the University’s future and is the result of a public request for proposals which took place in January and February of 2023. The Strategic Plan will be formed as a result of extensive consultations with groups internal and external to Laurentian University, with a particular focus on strengthening the bilingual and tricultural aspects of the institution.

“This strategic planning process will set a critical foundation for the University’s future. The process will be led by the University, the ideas will come from our community, and we’ll benefit from a partner with vast experience,” said Dr. Sheila Embleton, Interim President and Vice-Chancellor of Laurentian University.

After having recently selected Deloitte as the University’s Transformational Consultant, Laurentian University is poised to continue to renew and evolve in line with the needs of Northern Ontario communities.

The assistance of an external advisor in the strategic planning process is a requirement of the court-approved Amended Plan of Compromise and Arrangement. The Strategic Plan will also consider recommendations provided by Ontario’s Auditor General, the NOUS reports, and the French Language Services Commissioner.

The work to develop the Strategic Plan will begin immediately and is slated to be completed by December 2023. There will be many opportunities for engagement and more information on how to participate will be forthcoming.
