Dear Directors,

Crown Corporations Council is is the process of transitioning to Crown Services but we continue to offer the Board Performance Training Program in the interim.  Please click on the links below for current offerings.


Crown Corporations Council

Council is committed to strengthening Manitoba's Crown corporations.  The Auditor General's Report of 2009 indicated that 66% of board members expressed support fo governance training and capacity building opportunities for Manitoba's public sector boards. In response, government asked Council to develop and deliver a program to promote excellence in public board governance. This program has since been named the Board Performance Training program.

Workshops revolve around areas of core competencies and current issues that affect governance and leadership in Manitoba's public sector, including Roles and Responsibilities, Finance, Strategy, Risk, Evaluation and Performance.


Sessions include individuals from a variety of boards, and are held in a small group setting to encourage participants to engage in discussions with their peers around topics presented.

A nominal fee of $25.00 per participant is payable to the Crown Services Secretariat for each session. Those boards that provide Directors with remuneration for meetings will be responsible for those costs, as well as reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses usually covered by the board.

Meet Our Facilitators!

At the CSS, we believe in life-long learning and ensuring that we are providing the Manitoba public sector with up-to-date and relevant courses. To that end, our facilitators annually attend conferences and workshops, in order to renew their skills and create excellent courses.
