The FMI Capital Chapter has had a fantastic year and we are going out with a bang! This is the PD Day you will not want to miss! We have once again, enlisted engaging speakers to highlight some of the Government of Canada's key priorities that are of interest to you and your organization. Dynamic senior leaders, from both inside and outside Government, will share their perspectives on the various government priorities by sector: Economic Policy Priorities; Social Policy Priorities; and Innovation/Experimentation as a Top Priority. The day will feature several exciting keynote speakers throughout the day.

This PD Day is ideally suited for those involved in delivering on these key priorities, new entrants to the public service, aspiring leaders, those involved in strategic policy, program delivery, financial management or strategies and federal budget submissions. The PD Day will also be of interest to those who are clients of these initiatives and those who wish to understand interactions between departments and central agencies, and the Federal Budget process.
