Regional Partnerships and Collaboration

Regional Partnerships and Collaboration

In life, and in the municipal world, working with your neighbours is not always easy. If done right, it can provide major benefits. The EOEP’s Regional Partnerships and Collaboration course will provide participants with an opportunity to learn about required collaborative tools such as intermunicipal collaboration frameworks, as well as other approaches municipalities can take to build meaningful partnerships with their municipal neighbours in a way that is fair and mutually beneficial.

In addition to intermunicipal collaboration, the course will examine ways that municipalities can work with organizations within their community to provide strong and sustainable services. If you’re interested in how your municipality can transform collaboration from a requirement to an opportunity, sign up for Regional Partnerships and Collaboration to learn from experts in the field, as well as from your elected official colleagues.
