Municipal Leadership Forum

Delivering practical, actionable wisdom and cross-country-peer connections for change-ready cities

The Municipal Leadership Forum is an urban leadership network and capacity building program for Canadian municipal administrators who are charged with the daunting task of leading during trying times and managing the future of our cities. Developed by the Canadian Urban Institute in partnership with the Institute of Public Administration of Canada (IPAC), Ian O. Ihnatowycz Institute for Leadership at the Ivey Business School, Apolitical, and the Canadian Municipal Barometer, the program supports adaptation and change within the municipal civil service in a time when it is most urgently needed, delivering practical, actionable wisdom and cross-country peer connections to high-potential municipal leaders in a real-time learning environment, as their cities enter a period of great uncertainty and service transformation.
