Learning with Other Municipalities

Jun 08, 2016

Last week, I headed to Winnipeg to attend two important national municipal conferences, the Federation of Canadian Municipalities Annual Conference and the Canadian Association of Municipal Administrators Annual Conference.  I came back from these conferences with lot of great ideas on moving the City forward into the future. I'm excited to share my ideas with staff and workshop them in the coming weeks.


CAMA (Canadian Association of Municipal Administrators) Annual Conference

From May 30 to June 1, I attended the CAMA Annual Conference. The theme of this conference was "The Resiliency of the CAO". It offered an array of opportunities for all Chief Administrative Officers, municipal senior managers and staff members from various other functions in their respective organizations who are serious about enhancing their skill sets. The conference provided information and best practices to help us and our communities succeed and prosper.

FCM (Federation of Canadian Municipalities) Annual Conference

From June 2 to 5, I along with over 1,500 other municipal leaders attended Canada's largest municipal-federal conference. Accompanying me were Councillors Jerry Hong, Diane Brennan and Wendy Pratt. This year's theme was "Municipalities: The Heart of Canada" with the focus on municipalities as nation-builders and how this sector is helping to shape our country's future.
