Workshop Overview: We literally eat, drink and breathe public policy.  Public policy determines the quality of the air we breathe and the water we drink.  It affects the food we eat – how it is harvested, where it is distributed and sold, and how much we pay for it.  It controls the way in which we monitor the safety of the water supply. 

Public policy sets limits on air emissions. Transportation is governed by a variety of public policies, most of which are concerned with the safety of travelers. It determines the components of Canada’s tax regime – which combines income, sales and payroll taxes – and their respective levels. These are only a few examples of how public policy affects us both profoundly and pervasively. It influences virtually every aspect of our lives – including sport, culture and recreation services at every level.

We will be recording this in-person session and sharing it here.

Don’t miss out—limited seating available!
