Helping Municipal Leaders Maximize Opportunities and Achieve Real Results
Our Executive Leadership Program on Municipal Intergovernmental Relations helps municipal leaders deal effectively with contacts and counterparts at the federal and provincial levels.
Municipal government employees are being stretched as governance in Canada evolves.
This evolution brings both challenges and opportunities in intergovernmental relationships.
Infrastructure, transit, immigration/resettlement (to name but a few areas) are blurring traditional jurisdictional lines, while the biggest issues of our time demand ‘all-hands’ approaches. Municipal leaders are demanding the tools, resources, and training to be most effective in their expanding roles and to better deliver for their constituencies
If you are a senior municipal public servant who deals with the federal and provincial governments, our program can help you by:
Teaching the ‘how’ and ‘why’ your fed/prov counterparts operate the way they do
Developing strategies and tools to deal more effectively with other government orders
Sensitizing you to the biggest challenges at other levels of government and exploring/reframing the path forward
Engaging you in virtual interactive learning discussions based on real-world issues.

This program will be completely offered in a virtual environment to allow participation from municipal officials from coast to coast to coast.. However, going virtual does not mean you lose out on the value of face-to-face learning. Unlike traditional e-learning courses, the Executive Leadership Program on Municipal Intergovernmental Relations is highly interactive and our instructors will ensure you get the most of your experience.
The IOG Difference
Trust is an essential ingredient in liberal democratic societies and representative democracies. But public trust declines whenever institutions fail to meet citizens’ needs.
Our experts understand better than anyone the interface between governments and public trust, and have studied how different orders of government can work together to preserve and maintain trust. Put our expertise to work for you.
“The program left me with many actionable take-aways for my day-to-day work in municipal government relations. The ability to hear directly from experts working in the field was especially useful and made the investment of time and training dollars well worth it. I’m encouraging my staff and other colleagues to attend.”
