Integrated Community Sustainability Plan 2012Made in, for and with Revelstoke
What is an ICSP?
An ICSP provides a fresh look at the future for a community, to set priorities with a long-term strategic lens. It creates an ‘umbrella’ that integrates and links existing plans for efficient action.
Similar to past Community Development Action Plans, this ICSP compiles current data and a comprehensive survey about community members' well-being and desires for the future. It also involved the community in prioritizing community-wide actions to improve sustainability.
The ICSP is organized into a family of documents that include:
Part 1: SUSTAINABILITY FRAMEWORK
The Sustainability Framework takes a long-term (50 year) look at the trends that Revelstoke is facing. Based on these trends it identifies 10 sustainability priorities and a number of integrating strategies to focus our efforts for long-term benefits. It also recommends how the City, government agencies, community organizations, businesses and households can work together to implement the framework for the best results.
Part 2: STATE OF SUSTAINABILITY REPORT
This report documents what Revelstoke is doing well, and what improvements are needed on our path towards long-term sustainability. Participants at the November Sustainability Fair and others provided us great feedback that we’ve been incorporating into the final draft report.
Part 3: SUSTAINABILITY ACTION PLAN
The Sustainable Community Action Plan prioritizes Revelstoke’s next steps to enhance our sustainability. This plan brings together actions from every City and community planning document, and new ideas, and prioritizes them using community input and technical assessment. These priorities are the big, important moves that Revelstoke needs to take to become an even better place to live, work and play.

Labour Market Survey ResultsThe Revelstoke Labour Market Survey addresses four issues:
- to gain an accurate profile of the labour market based on a representative sample of the businesses in operation.
- to discern the current and projected labour market needs. Which positions, if any were Revelstoke’ business owners having difficulty filling?
- to learn what retention and attraction strategies businesses were currently using to attract employees and how they could be improved.
- to examine the educational profile of our community to establish the current and future training needs of our workforce.
The data collected complements regional and provincial statistics provided by different governing agencies so that community leaders and business owners can act proactively and make good informed labour force and training decisions.
