Intergovernmental relations in Canada's federal system can be complex to navigate as they are often dependant on legal regulations and procedures.

This ninth event in the series will explore the various interpretations of intergovernmental relations for the different orders of government, and will share recent case studies that have had a significant impact on provincial powers and intergovernmental cooperation.

Participants will gain a better understanding of the roles and responsibilities among the different federal systems and across jurisdictions.
