Our programs allow for physical attendance in multiple locations across Canada, as well as remote listening via internet radio. With no charge for switching between formats in instances when both are available, we ensure your program is available to you whenever you are ready - week day, weekend, night cap or lunch hour.

Covering a wide range of professional concerns, including many areas of relevance to federal, provincial and municipal civil servants, as well as areas of note for indigenous and industry professionals, our broad scope ensures your ongoing professional development needs can be reliably met, time and again.

After experiencing program cancellations elsewhere, it’s truly refreshing to have a provider with a “no cancellation” guarantee. That along with the vast coverage of topics and the convenient access options got me convinced. I’ll definitely take another workshop next year.

Three workshops later, the Commons Institute has become my go-to, trusted partner for professional development. The workshops and speakers are consistently top shelf, and they always take a personable approach to finding out and addressing the concerns of my workplace.
