Coordinator, Strategic Initiatives,

Engaging citizens in decision-making leads to better decisions. People care about where they live, I am energized by the passion and creativity that residents bring to decision-making. There are always new tools, techniques, and technologies emerging in the area of public consultation. The best part about public consultation is the public.


Director of Professional Development,

Meaningful consultations are on the rise! Canadians want to be heard, they want to be engaged on issues that affect their health, families and livelihood. Public Participation Professionals are developing new knowledge and skills every day to help them respond to the need. The current Federal government is committed to listening and are consulting with Canadians to spread the words. There are so many ways to engage and new technologies are being developed every day!
