Imagine Canada’s public policy roadshow is coming to Vancouver and Victoria

It’s a federal election year – a great time for charities to get more involved in public policy issues. Our public policy roadshow is aimed at helping you and your board members get involved and navigate the regulatory waters. We’ll deal with issues like:

  • Why and how to get involved in public policy;
  • What the “political activity” rules mean;
  • Lobbyist registration; and,
  • Election time dos and don’ts.

We’ll be in Vancouver on February 17 and Victoria on February 20. As a charity leader, your price of admission is to bring along one of your board members.
