Featured course: CANS 420 — Shaping Public Affairs in Canada



This class provides an exploration of key aspects of public affairs and leadership in Canada. Politics in Canada and elsewhere has shifted in dramatic ways over the last decade, as have corporate life, social expectations, and technology. Public affairs practice has mirrored these changes, sometimes more and sometimes less successfully.


Each class will provide an opportunity for students to meet leading experts working in public affairs in Canada, and will feature guest lectures from Andre Picard (health reporter for the Globe and Mail), Jennifer Ditchburn (editor-in-chief of Policy Options), Bill Moore-Kilgannon (executive director of the Parkland Institute), Dorothy Dobbie (former Senator), and more.
