This year, for the first time, Michael Ferguson, Auditor General of Canada, will join us for a full day workshop and discuss the many challenges faced when connecting our democratic system of governance to the final delivery of government programs to people.

The steps involved in examining government processes, programs, departments, and spending are complex, involving significant coordination and expertise. What lessons have we learned over the years? What problems seem to arise consistently across cases? How can we make our democratic system more prudent while also maintaining efficiency and effectiveness?

With over a decade of experience as auditor general at the provincial and federal levels, Mr. Ferguson provides a most unique vantage point from which to view the state of affairs here in Canada.

Take advantage of this opportunity and be part of the conversation!
