First Nations and Local Governments: Creating Mutual Benefits through Service Delivery
October 6th & 7th, 2009
UBC Robson Square
Join us to learn how First Nations and local governments can realize significant mutual benefits in working together to deliver services.
This practical two-day course explores the core issues in efficient and cost-effective service delivery, including in-depth information on:
- The different models of service delivery – What works best in what context? What are the advantages and drawbacks of the key models such as P3s and Joint Use Agreements?
- The best ways to pay for service delivery – What is available in terms of taxation, private, federal and municipal funds? What is the best way to pool funds? What are the proposed federal changes to the Financial Administration Act? What will their impact be and what should be done in anticipation of the proposed changes?
- How to keep service delivery projects moving forward when faced with accountability and other common obstacles known for stalling projects
Our expert faculty will share lessons from decades of first-hand experience through successful, challenging and innovative examples in service delivery from both urban and rural contexts.
You will then have the opportunity to bring your specific questions to the table at the Faculty Roundtable where we will explore how opportunities in your community can be turned into tangible benefits.
