The  Official Community Plan (OCP) is our collective long-term vision for Saskatoon, guiding the physical, environmental, economic, social and cultural development of our community.  It provides both inspiration and direction through a comprehensive policy framework to ensure the community's vision for Saskatoon is integrated in to all aspects of planning, decision-making and priority-setting for the City. 

The direction and goals outlined in the OCP are entrenched in law and recognized under the authority of the  Planning and Development Act, 2007The OCP works in conjunction with the City's Strategic Plan and Multi-Year Business Plan and Budgeting process to create a strategic framework for how priorities are set and how the City achieves its goals.

City Council unanimously approved a new OCP for Saskatoon in June 2020, followed by provincial approval in August 2020.
