Today’s public servants need a firm grasp of how power and politics influence their work and the decisions of elected officials. This course takes participants beyond the dry accounts found in textbooks and training manuals, speaking directly to the issues and challenges that shape policymaking in Canada. You’ll learn how structures like parliament, federalism, and the electoral cycle impact your work. And how forces like reconciliation and populism are changing the way we think about the role of public servants in Canadian democracy.

The content in this video series is based on the book by Alex Marland and Jared Wesley. If you’re interested in purchasing a copy, follow this link.
