Simon Fraser University

Workshop: Troubleshooting Public Engagement
May 20, 2015 - 2:00pm - 5:00pm
Room 1400, SFU Harbour Centre
515 West Hastings Street

Effective public engagement processes often lead to wise recommendations and are seen as critical to the democratic process, yet the work involves big risks and challenges.

How do we mitigate those risks and plan for success? What do we do when things go sideways, whether within an engagement process or in ensuring its influence? And how do we frame and acknowledge the tensions between the implicit desire to do public good and the broader political realities that confront us?

Canadian federalism has two constitutionally recognized levels of government: federal and provincial. Local governments, including municipal, county and semi-regional councils, boards and agencies are not constitutionally recognized entities, but rather fall under the jurisdiction of the provinces and territories who are responsible for their creation. In Canada, it is the federal level of government who has authority in many crucial sectors, including air and rail transportation; shipping and navigation; energy; telecommunications; and criminal regulation.
