As a multinational country, established on Indigenous land, Canada is a place where provinces and territories exercise substantial autonomy across wide-ranging policy fields. This sets Canada apart from most other federations.

This eighth event in the series explores the specific needs and challenges of developing public policy within the Canadian context. The event will emphasize how policy development is most successful when partners and stakeholders throughout the country collaborate and co-develop, while respecting unique regional needs and building common ground.

Participants will gain a better understanding of how Canada develops policy practices and the challenges and opportunities of making policies on a national scale.
