Innovating for Impact: Strategic Plan 2024-2029


The Child Development Institute (CDI) is proud to launch our new 2024-29 Strategic Plan: Innovating for Impact.

As we embark on serving an estimated 50,000 children, youth, and families over the next five years, we strive to transform mental health and well-being services through four strategic directions:

  • Our Clients: Strong Client Outcomes
  • Our People: Thriving and Inclusive Culture
  • Our Society: Systems Leadership and Partnership
  • Strong Infrastructure

CDI prioritizes Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility (IDEA) and Truth and Reconciliation as core strategic imperatives throughout our five-year plan, informing our strategic directions and contributing to the framework by which CDI will hold ourselves accountable for achieving our goals and honouring our commitments.
