This webinar provides an overview of the process employed in the development of MCs, as well as an appreciation of the purpose, structure and mandate of Cabinet and its key committees. The webinar walks participants through each step of the development of the key recommendations for Cabinet consideration, and covers the roles played by central agencies in reviewing your Cabinet submissions.

Note: If you are also planning to take the Treasury Board Submissions Webinar, we are offering a two-day special rate.
