Our strategic plan for 2023-2029 will help us fulfill our vision to become the leading international underground laboratory. It leverages past investments and builds on our strong record of achievements and recognized strengths. It supports our efforts to create a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive culture that welcomes the community to SNOLAB.
