Recent external developments related to the economy, national security, technology, and climate change are reshaping Coast Guard’s business and operating environment.  These factors, when combined with evolving government priorities and our Agency’s own focus on improving service delivery, demand that we in Coast Guard think strategically with long-term goals in mind.  This thinking is essential to providing the best advice possible on what our future direction is, and on what CCG will need to look like in the future.  By virtue of our growing and diverse workforce, unique capital assets, the vast area we service, and those with whom we do business, Coast Guard works with communities, workers, and organizations across the country to build Canada’s economic future.
