Message from the Chairs

Welcome To

fmi*igf is excited to announce that this year's Public Sector Management Workshop (PSMW) will be hosted in Winnipeg, Manitoba, May 29 to 30, 2017. Winnipeg, the "little spark on the prairie", is a cosmopolitan city complete with top-notch restaurants, swanky boutiques, exciting attractions and an arts and culture scene that bursts with talent and originality.

It has been ten years since the last PSMW event was last held in Winnipeg, and much has changed in that time. The city has seen the return of a professional hockey team; a new federal museum, the Canadian Museum of Human Rights; and an award-winning "Journey to Churchill" exhibition at the Assiniboine Park Zoo that features the most comprehensive northern species exhibit of its kind in the world. The city and province have also experienced continued growth, first in population with an influx of new immigrants, and second in its economy, leading the country in employment growth in 2016. However, pressures from an aging infrastructure, a cooling housing market and a new provincial government seeking efficiencies in the workplace, now have economists looking to the future with uncertainty.

In light of all these changes and challenges, and recognizing that there are issues common to all provinces and sectors in Canada, the PSMW 2017 Organizing Committee was definite on the workshop's theme "Collaboration ~ Growth ~ Renewal". Understanding that leaders need to work collaboratively to ensure continued growth and success, the PSMW Organizing Committee has invited speakers from all levels of government, as well as industry experts, to present emerging issues and to equip participants with the tools they need. Participants will also have an opportunity to network with fellow members of the financial management community from all three levels of government… an opportunity to share best practices in the workplace.

So join us this May in Winnipeg, Manitoba for PSMW 2017! We look forward to welcoming you!
