Financial Management Institute of Canada – Professional Development Week

The most anticipated event for public sector financial managers is back

It has been said that necessity is the mother of invention. Nowhere is that truer than within the financial management profession of the public sector – in Canada and around the world.

At all levels of government, financial management professionals have faced unprecedented challenges that have spurred remarkable innovation.

We have adapted to new ways of working and delivering professional services. “Lessons have been learned”. New best practices have emerged. We are rapidly moving from survival mode to a dramatically new way of working.

Now is the time to take stock of a transformed public sector landscape and lead the charge for sustainable excellence. That’s the umbrella theme driving this year’s in-person PD Week:

Leading the Charge:
Accelerating from Innovation to Excellence

Please plan to join us now for this inspiring live event from November 22–25 in Ottawa at the Shaw Centre.
