Municipalities are the most dynamic and innovative order of government in Canada. Being on the front lines of Canadians’ daily lives means that municipal leaders must be constantly responsive to new challenge and opportunities as they arise. That responsibility means we must constantly be learning and seeking new partnerships.

That’s why FCM is proud to present our newest webinar series: Collective. Through this series, we will bring to you in-depth conversations and discussions designed to connect you to the latest thinking around some of the most pressing challenges in Canadian municipal life.

These new connections—delivered alongside partners from the most cutting-edge leaders in the private sector—will help you re-examine your community’s needs and develop new solutions to stay ahead of the curve.

Join us as we present a moderated discussion with a wide array of panelists, and take your questions.
