Strategic Planning at ECU
As a learning institution with an expanding and diverse community, we know that creating our future together involves ongoing reflection, study, and visioning. This is why we're currently working to create the university's next strategic plan.
Emily Carr’s last strategic plan was a four-year plan covering priorities, goals, and activities from 2017 to 2021. The plan looked at eight commitments to maintain our core strengths and develop our emerging and potential strengths.

Public Sector Executive Compensation Disclosure Statements
In British Columbia, organizations defined by the Public Sector Employers Act are statutorily required to disclose all compensation that is paid to the Chief Executive Officer and the next four highest ranking or highest paid executives with decision-making authority earning an annualized base salary of $125,000 or greater during a fiscal year.
The annual executive compensation disclosure is based on the best practice of complete transparency and therefore, full accountability for compensation paid to executives in public sector organizations in British Columbia.
