The public sector relies on a framework of Internal Controls to ensure the safe, efficient and modern operation of every aspect of our civil society. In today’s environment of rapid change, technology driven systems and increased scrutiny, the need for air-tight internal controls has never been greater. New approaches to old systems are needed to meet the public’s mounting expectations for efficiency, security and innovation. This conference will examine the most effective strategies for improving service delivery, managing change, mitigating risk, measuring outcomes and fostering innovation through public sector internal controls.

Canada In A Day

Development & Creative Writer / Digital Producer

Canada is in the midst of an incredible Big Data transformation at all levels of the public sector. Cities, towns, provinces and the federal government are preparing for open data access, transparent collaborations, blockchain / IoT operating systems and new digital service platforms. The goal of today’s digital public service is to improve productivity, increase value, develop new services and improve citizen’s experience while reducing strain on the service providers. Understanding this digital evolution means you are ready for the transformations underway in technology, processes and people.

Regulatory professionals must ensure the competent and ethical behaviour of their membership and governing body. This extends to all aspects of oversight and takes into account behaviour while off-duty or out of the traditional work environment. To project the membership and the public’s interests, rules of governance are constantly being modernized. Delegates attending this event will hear from the industry leading faculty about the latest developments in Professional Regulation and Discipline proceedings.
