Crown Corporation Governance

When: Tuesday, June 2, 2015 - 11:30 - 14:30

Where: Montreal

The governance structure of crown corporations and public sector agencies has sometimes become a source of confusion among CEOs, board chairs, ministers, and bureaucrats. Shifting public expectations regarding public sector transparency and accountability have spurred reforms meant to achieve greater government oversight and control. In some cases, these changes have helped streamline reporting processes and improve efficiency. However, the lines between government departments and crown corporations also sometimes have become blurred. Moreover, some jurisdictions that have endorsed effective governance principles and best practices have found it difficult to properly implement them in practice. These issues have led some to ask if it is now time to rethink how crown corporations are governed.

On June 2nd, the Public Policy Forum is convening a select group of leaders in Montreal to help advance this important discussion. While participation is by invitation only, the summary report will be available on the Forum’s website following the conclusion of the roundtable.
