Our depth of experience and network of thought leaders

We have over 20 years experience exploring and developing approaches to responsible and responsive governance and public sector leadership in Canada and abroad.

A safe space for discussion and sharing of ideas

Our Executive Leadership Program, leadership boot camps, day courses, and custom courses are designed to be safe spaces for dialogue and sharing ideas. They are informed by our research and advisory services, and developed, tested and taught by former senior public servants. Learn more about learning opportunities at the IOG.
