All levels of government are increasingly seeking opportunities to collaborate with the public to find solutions to issues facing Canadians. However, questions remain about how best to ensure that public engagement is successful while being respectful and inclusive of a wide array of perspectives.

This fourth event in the Government of the Future Series will explore some of the factors and challenges to consider when collaborating effectively with the public. Speakers will present the latest research on public engagement insights to address known issues, suggest solutions, and improve public administration.

Participants will learn about the most recent practices for collaboration in a government context, when to use them, and strategies to promote inclusive collaboration.
