Why should I invest in governance training?

•   Governance Drives Success: The better an organization is governed, the better its management, accountability, fiscal responsibility, community engagement, customer care and focus, outcomes and accomplishments. 

•   Capacity Building: Our graduates serve not only on the boards of crown corporations, RHAs, colleges, universities and school boards, but they serve on many other boards across the province in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. This contributes to the country's overall capacity to build and expand on its good governance practices. 

•   Network Benefits: Better governed organizations have strength both vertically – they are managed better – and horizontally – they work well across the system. Together there is a common language about corporate governance principles, concepts, expectations, roles, responsibilities and relationships with each other and with government.
