Relationship Strategy


With a population that is expected to pass 100,000 in the next 3 years, and a strong, diverse and stable economy, Lethbridge will continue to grow. While growth may be inevitable, how that growth impacts our existing and future relationships within and beyond our City is not.

The Relationship Strategy (RelS) builds upon the knowledge and data gathered through the previous three Strategies (Efficient Land Use Strategy, Environment and Historic Resources Strategy, Economy and Tourism Strategy) to begin a series of future-focused regional conversations on matters that concern all of us: water, agriculture, economic development and tourism, land use planning and relationships with Indigenous Peoples and First Nations. RelS asks key questions, such as: What role does the City of Lethbridge play in the region? How do our actions impact others? How do the actions of others impact us? How can we foster better relationships with our regional partners, including with Indigenous Peoples and First Nations?

Upcoming Engagement Opportunities

Each strategy is a comprehensive undertaking. It requires the co-ordination of many city business units and requires input from several stakeholder groups and the community at large. See the Public Participation Plan to the learn more about future engagement opportunities.
