We at Northern Vision Planning Ltd. are proud to provide a high standard in service and expertise to our clients. Please take a few minutes to read a few of our client experiences.

Ron Earl

Earl’s Excavating Inc.

I met Steve of Northern Vision Planning 2-years ago when I was preparing to licence a property for a gravel pit. Steve has been involved from the start of my project with the rezoning stage through to the licencing process with the Ministry of Natural Resources. I would highly recommend Steve for any kind of planning work that you would need to have done. Steve has been very thorough and is a pleasure to work with.

Geraldine Gold

Cottage Owner on Lake Muskoka

Steve Fahner represented my husband and I last year when appealing plans regarding the location of a neighbouring boathouse. He prepared reports and presented to the Planning Committee in the District of the Muskoka Lakes. We were very impressed with his knowledge not only of the details of due process but also of the local environment and its relevant issues. Steve’s confident style, thorough preparation and skilful presentation were all far above our expectations. On top of it all, he is personable and a pleasure to deal with. I wish him the best in his future.


Stoney Lake, ON

It was a positive and pleasurable experience to work with Stephen on the bylaw amendment for our proposed cottage rebuild – his knowledge of what municipal council, planners and building officials are really looking for complimented the written word in bylaws and codes that can be so hard to navigate and also to conform with – and his positive and respectful approach to the hearing, including a written report and Power Point presentation, led to a successful application.

Laurie Kennard, CAO

Georgian Bay, ON

The Township of Georgian Bay was pleased to contract Stephen as our Interim Director of Planning while we were short staffed in that department. Stephen’s excellent planning skills, knowledge of the Township of Georgian Bay’s unique geographical make up, leadership abilities and political acuity made him an outstanding addition to our team. Stephen very capably stepped in and managed a very busy Planning department, suggesting process improvements and providing leadership, coaching and development to our Planning team. We wish Stephen success in his future endeavours and would not hesitate to invite him back to the Township of Georgian Bay should the need arise.

Paula & Steve

Muskoka, ON

Paula and I just wanted to thank you for all the help with the Minor 
Variance Application.

Your knowledge and background helped us in avoiding spending a lot of 
extra time and energy wading through the whole process which looked 
daunting to us, we realized that this would not be an easy application 
but one that we felt still made all kinds of sense under the 
circumstances. With your professional Planning Report and Power Point 
Presentation you were able to convey our thoughts and concerns to the 
committee much better than we would have been able to and were able to 
obtain what we were sure was going to be a challenging approval.

 It was a pleasure to work with you and we would not hesitate to 
recommend you to our friends and in fact we believe a few have already 
contacted you. We are sure that you will be able guide them as 
thoroughly and professionally as you did with us.

 Thanks again
