Core Indicators Strategic Plan
Published on Monday, 5 June, 2017

The Core Indicators Project Strategic Plan is now available.  

This plan is the result of extensive work understanding the Core Indicators project and it's contribution to Ontario's public health system.  Since the project's inception in 1998, the Core Indicators has been a respected authority of standardized population health assessment indicators.  This most recent strategic plan sets ambitious goals to further the value of the Core Indicators for public health epidemiology in Ontario.  
As an epidemiologist in a local public health unit, the Core Indicators are the first place I look when starting a new project.  So I would just like to take a moment to say thank-you to all the volunteers who created this resource over the years.  And also to acknowledge the Core Indicators Work Group (& additional contributors) who put together the 2017-2019 strategic plan.  
Your work is invaluable. 
Core Indicators Work Group Chair
