fmi*igf is excited to announce that this year's PSMW (Public Sector Management Workshop) will be hosted in Winnipeg, Manitoba (the "little spark on the prairie") May 29 to 30, 2017. 

In light of the changes and challenges faced by all provinces and sectors in Canada these days, and understanding that leaders need to work collaboratively to ensure continued growth and success, the PSMW Organizing Committee was definite on the workshop's theme "Collaboration - Growth - Renewal" and thus has invited speakers from all levels of government, as well as industry experts, to present emerging issues and to equip participants with the tools they need.

Participants will also have an opportunity to network with fellow members of the financial management community from all three levels of government… an opportunity to share best practices in the workplace.

We look forward to seeing you!

Lynn Cowley & Robyn Van Vliet
PSMW 2017 Co-Chairs

Enterprise Management Transformation: Understanding the new era of leveraging internal control
Location: Crowne Plaza Gatineau, 2 rue Montcalm, Gatineau
08:00h - 16:00h

Building on last year's successful theme, Integration and horizontal collaboration between enterprise-level systems, processes and people is a continuing focus. These are core elements that drive enterprise management transformation, of which financial management is a part. This PD Day will explore new directions emanating from Enterprise Management Transformation, the emerging requirements in financial, HR and procurement systems, and how risk-based internal controls have become a key success indicator.

This PD Day will highlight how the management of big data (financial, policy, HR etc.) is becoming increasingly important to this transformation. We will hear the challenges in providing assurance (for accuracy, reliability, accessibility and timeliness) in a standardized way. Participants to this PD Day will have the opportunity to learn how departmental maturity in implementing a number of TB policies, including the Policy on Internal Control, directly relates to their transformation results. The direction and leadership emanating from central agencies on continual enhancement through the establishment of common data elements, common business processes, and move to common configuration and how they work with other enabling sectors, such as IT, HR, will be featured. We will hear from departments on their successes and challenges to meet the rapidly changing requirements.

This PD Day will be of interest to those who are currently involved in Internal Control, Financial Systems, Audit and those who provide Advisory Services, as well as to those who are clients of these functions, and those who wish to hone their skills in this area. Join us for this very interactive professional development day!

2017 Joint CPA FMI Professional Workshop

Beyond the Crash: Waiting for the Upswing? Managing Uncertainty in Uncertain Times

May 24 & 25, 2017

The local chapters of the Chartered Professional Accountants and the Financial Management Institute invite you to the 17th annual Joint Professional Development Workshop being held on May 24 & 25, 2017 at the Hotel Grand Pacific in Victoria. 

This year’s theme is “Beyond the Crash: Waiting for the Upswing? Managing Uncertainty in Uncertain Times”.  Everyone was impacted by the Market Crash in 2008. And everyone has been waiting for the economy to recover. With interest rates at all-time lows, stagnant growth and an inability to use monetary policy to kick start the recovery without creating uncontrollable inflation, people are wondering:  What’s next?  How can we recover or is it even possible to recover? What is the role of government in that recovery?   Topics for presentation and discussion include balancing the economy and environment, trade, alternative revenue sources, emerging technology plus sessions on leadership, coaching and everyone’s favorite, accounting!

This year we are pleased to have Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps as our keynote speaker to kickoff our conference!

Financial Management Supporting the Government's Agenda - How it all Works
Location: Crowne Plaza Gatineau, 2 rue Montcalm, Gatineau
08:00h - 16:00h

To close the FMI-Capital Chapter's programming season, we will hear about how a current theme of the Government of Canada's agenda, a winter/spring budget announcement or new initiative is played out. We will examine the roles and responsibilities of departments, the Prime Minister's office / Privy Council Office, Department of Finance and the Treasury Board Secretariat as the theme is worked out. The exact theme will be chosen closer to the day.

The day will focus on developing the government's agenda through the Speech from the Throne and the Federal Budget and on translating government priorities into action through Memoranda to Cabinet and Treasury Board submissions. The parliamentary process will be touched upon. The day will also include the requirements of Departments and particular those of Chief Financial Officers and ADMs of Corporate Services Branches to manage this process and the challenges and opportunities faced by them in their operations to align to the emerging requirements.  Participants will learn the key steps in the financial process, from funding initiation to public reporting, the financial roles, responsibilities and accountabilities of key stakeholders in the government's departments and agencies.

Looking forward to seeing you at this informative event you cannot miss! This PD Day will be of interest to those who are new entrants to the public service (and are aspiring to be young leaders), those currently are involved in strategic policy, budget submissions, or financial strategies; those who are clients of these functions, and those who wish to hone their understanding of interactions between departments and central agencies.
