Canada's first and only certificate in public sector leadership focuses on large, complex programs involving the delivery of multiple project elements. Participants learn to strategically guide programs using the structure and best practices that ensure senior-level oversight and success.

At the end of this intensive program, participants will have enhanced their leadership and risk management skills to better respond to inevitably shifting priorities when assessing program effectiveness and efficiency.  They will develop strategic thinking abilities to ensure that government programs are aligned to the requirements of the Departmental Results FrameworkProgram Inventory and the Performance Information Profiles.
