This training was developed in collaboration with our subject matter expert, Tammy Robertson. Tammy brings her immeasurable knowledge and award-winning experience to ICT clients through the development of course materials to training ICT clients in virtual classrooms or in person. She has over 13 years of experience in local government and municipal external relations. She has led Mayor, Council and City staff to see Indigenous relations through a new lens.

Now you can learn best practices from a subject matter expert.
