Social Sustainability Plan

Social Sustainability is about making sure we can meet the needs of residents today as well as into the future by fostering healthy communities. It also means that social wellbeing is balanced with economic and environmental considerations.

As the City of Spruce Grove grows we need to take proactive steps to ensure it continues to be a great place to live, work and play.

The City of Spruce Grove's Social Sustainability Plan   was presented to Council in 2016. This plan provides a blueprint to address the social needs that currently exist and builds resiliency as our community changes. 

The Social Sustainability Plan identifies 8 key areas for action:
