13 What are the “missions” of NOSDA and its member organizations? NOSDA Strategic Plan NOSDA will be proactive: - anticipating new developments in the field; and, - developing the internal capacity to achieve the goals of NOSDA and its members.

14 Our Vision: NOSDA Strategic Plan In three years, NOSDA will… —Be recognized across Ontario and Canada as a leading proponent of integrated service delivery and the role of service-system manager in the field of human services —Be able to point to improved outcomes for people, supported by recognized measures of success, including measures of client satisfaction —Be able to report to our municipal and Provincial sponsors: on efficiency, effectiveness and client satisfaction; on program sustainability and innovation; and, on the social ‘dividends’ of public ‘investment’ in people For those issues that are not yet upon us, NOSDA will… —Anticipate new developments in human services field and assemble internal capacity to deal effectively with them —Be seen as an effective advocate, partner and coalition-builder on behalf of Northern Ontario and all of its diverse communities —Be seen as a willing host for additional or expanded – but sustainable – human services programs: —enhancing the success of existing programs —expanding the horizons for those in need —demonstrating the value of integrated policy and program-delivery models, including role of service-system manager —Be a respected and effective “authoritative voice” for the labour market, social and fiscal interests of all Northern Ontario communities —including rural and remote municipalities, First Nations and urban Aboriginals, and ‘municipally unorganized’ communities 14

15 Two concepts: NOSDA Strategic Plan An Accessible Labour Market: All Northern Ontario communities and their associations (FONOM and NOMA) have a shared interest in economic prosperity. A robust labour market offers economic security to our workers and for which our residents are trained and available. An “accessible labour market” – a labour market that is accessible to all. Developing partnerships with employers and educational institutions who can work with the specific needs and circumstances of our clients Integrated Service Delivery and the Service-System Manager Model: Many clients need a range of services. Their interaction with human services providers can often be more satisfying and ultimately more successful, when a collection of mutually supporting services is offered to them, ideally in a single set of simultaneous or logical, sequential interactions with service providers. This efficient and consumer-focused approach – integrated human services delivery – is further enhanced when the delivery organization manages the full range of service-delivery options, either directly or through others. When circumstances allow, service offerings may be generally or selectively expanded, to further enhance the experience of the client and the outcomes being sought by clients, service-providers and funding agencies. This integration of a full suite of human services is often referred to as the “Service-System Manager” model. 15

16 Our Vision: NOSDA Strategic Plan In three years, NOSDA will… —Be recognized across Ontario and Canada as a leading proponent of integrated service delivery and the role of service-system manager in the field of human services —Be able to point to improved outcomes for people, supported by recognized measures of success, including measures of client satisfaction —Be able to report to our municipal and Provincial sponsors: – on efficiency, effectiveness and client satisfaction; – on program sustainability and innovation; and, – on the social ‘dividends’ of public ‘investment’ in people 16

17 Our Vision: NOSDA Strategic Plan For those issues that are not yet upon us, NOSDA will… —Anticipate new developments in human services field and assemble internal capacity to deal effectively with them —Be seen as an effective advocate, partner and coalition-builder on behalf of Northern Ontario and all of its diverse communities —Be seen as a willing host for additional or expanded – but sustainable – human services programs: – enhancing the success of existing programs – expanding the horizons for those in need – demonstrating the value of integrated policy and program-delivery models, including role of service-system manager —Be a respected and effective “authoritative voice” for the labour market, social and fiscal interests of all Northern Ontario communities —including rural and remote municipalities, First Nations and urban Aboriginals, and ‘municipally unorganized’ communities 17

18 Our Values: NOSDA Strategic Plan A Statement of Our Core Values: NOSDA will aid its member organizations and its local municipalities by demonstrating creativity, responsiveness, efficiency and results in the planning, design and delivery of human services NOSDA will aid its member organizations and its local municipalities to be respectful and enabling in their relations with our ultimate clients and accountable to taxpayers, as well as being model employers and good ‘corporate citizens’ NOSDA will consistently demonstrate a concern for those it serves by looking beyond program boundaries to the pursue approaches and conditions that will achieve sustainable program results and outcomes NOSDA will work to earn the reputation among government agencies and other organizations, as a good partner and an authoritative voice, focused on clients and communities, and willing to explore new, innovative, and evidenced-based ways to achieve results 18

19 Our Mandates: NOSDA has four major program-delivery mandates. It also plays a role in advocating for healthy social development and accessible labour markets in Northern Ontario and its communities, and as well serving as a vehicle that its members can use to enhance their internal and group capacity as organizations. Income Support and Employment Services Housing Services and Homelessness Children’s Services Emergency medical services Northern Community Development Capacity building 19

20 NOSDA Strategic Plan NOSDA Strategic Plan Plan organizes its objectives by three different types of mandates: NOSDA’s direct responsibilities (“NOSDA Will…”) NOSDA’s leadership and facilitation (“NOSDA Leads / Facilitates”): NOSDA’s support and assistance (“NOSDA Supports”): Different roles for differing mandates 20

21 NOSDA Strategic Plan NOSDA Strategic Plan Our Four Strategic Goals >>>> Recognizing the differing roles of DSSABs / CMSMs, municipalities and NOSDA itself, NOSDA will strive to achieve its four strategic goals by:  Achieving Strategic Plan goals and objectives for which NOSDA is specifically responsible;  Leading and collaborating with NOSDA’s member organizations to achieve Strategic Plan goals and objectives in areas of shared responsibility; and,  Supporting NOSDA member organizations (its DSSABs and its CMSM), as well as the municipalities and Aboriginal communities they serve, where they aim to achieve Strategic Plan goals and objectives, in areas beyond NOSDA’s direct responsibilities… Our Four Strategic Goals >>>> 21
