Our future… Nature, Rural character and A united community
It is with great pride that City Council and the municipal administration present the strategic vision for the future of our community.
The strategic vision is a collaborative process initiated by the municipality in partnership with its community. Indeed, many of our residents have participated in sharing their interests and needs through surveys, as well as in several meetings and exchanges. The result is truly a collective vision of the future of the Township of Gore that everyone can fully appropriate.
This reflection process allowed us to study the current state of our community as well as to position ourselves on certain essential questions: Where are we today? Where are we going? How far do we want to go? How are we going to do it?
Through these reflections, we have been able to establish our identity and our vision. For our community, it's about building on environmental values, highlighting the rural character of our territory and strengthening our dynamic and collaborative community. The vision of the Canton of Gore is to aspire to become a reference in terms of environmental protection in Quebec, to preserve its rural attributes and to boost the cultural and community exchanges of its environment.
The Township of Gore adheres to the mission of providing the best opportunities for real sustainable community development, building on its assets and elements of its identity, providing quality services at a fair cost, with the goal of strengthening the sense of belonging and pride of its residents.
In the end, six major strategic directions were identified following this major project of reflection on the future of our community:
• A satisfied, engaged and happy community. Caring for the interests and needs of her community, the Township of Gore is committed to working with community groups and residents to energize the community and enhance the quality of life;
• Sustainable development of the municipality aimed at growth that meets the social identity of the community of the Township of Gore and its environmental values;
• Innovative land use planning based on current achievements, preserving the identity of the Township of Gore and the values of its territory;
• A healthy, preserved and accessible environment as a central element in the growth of the Township of Gore;
• Positioning, recognition and collaboration with residents, community groups and other surrounding communities;
• A successful municipal organization.
Our community faces many opportunities and challenges. The collaboration and involvement of residents and community groups will allow us to focus our efforts and commitments in achieving these goals.

Contract Management Bylaw
We regularly acquire goods and services to meet the diverse needs of citizens. These acquisitions are generally the subject of a contract between one or more municipal bodies and the party or parties willing to provide goods or services related to insurance, work, supplies and services.
Contracting is an important and strategic exercise that requires sound and rigorous management by municipalities. Municipalities have obligations and responsibilities that stem from legislative and regulatory provisions to regulate the awarding of contracts as well as to ensure the transparency of processes and accountability to citizens.
