Program at a Glance

The unique Executive Leadership Program in Municipal Intergovernmental Affairs will help municipal leaders to understand and develop effective strategies in dealing with the federal and provincial governments.

Municipal leaders face a changing environment.  The growth and importance of urban issues is stretching traditional municipal roles, responsibilities and budgets.  At the same time, relationships with other orders of government are becoming more important and more complex.

The traditional intergovernmental relationships between the federal government and the provinces and the municipalities are well understood. For municipalities, the intergovernmental landscape is changing.

The interactions between the federal government and municipalities are increasing as priorities merge in critical areas such as infrastructure, transit, immigration, climate change and innovation.  Increasingly, municipal priorities are federal priorities.   At the same time, there is a new relationship emerging between Queen’s Park and municipalities.  

To be effective in this new world, municipal leaders need to understand how these changes are affecting the relationships between the three orders of government, and develop up-to-date strategies to deal with them.

We are excited to launch this new program in November of 2019.

Who Should Attend?

Senior Municipal public servants looking to understand and develop effective strategies in dealing with the federal and provincial governments.

Program Objectives:

  • To understand “why” the federal government and province operate in this new environment (pressures, accountabilities, demands, priorities).
  • To understand “how” the federal government and province function.
  • To develop tangible strategies and tools to deal more effectively with other orders of government.
  • To learn from interactive discussions based on real issues.

Participants will learn about:

  • Municipal intergovernmental priorities
  • Provincial-municipal relations
  • Federal-municipal relations
  • Priorities and culture of other orders of government.

Building on the IOG’s unique expertise in Ottawa and at Queen’s Park, participants will benefit from interactions with senior federal and provincial officials and other experts.
