Institute on Governance

The Institute on Governance (IOG) was founded in 1990 to promote effective governance. According to the Institute, governance comprises the “traditions, institutions and processes that determine how power is exercised, how citizens are given a voice, and how decisions are made on issues of public concern.” Its activities include research and analysis, advisory services, professional development, conferences, workshops and study tours. The Institute works in partnership with governments, NGOs, international organizations and the private sector.

Based in Ottawa, the Institute focuses on seven main knowledge areas: Aboriginal governance, accountability and performance measurement, board governance, building policy capacity, technology and governance, values, ethics and risk, and international programming. Typically, the Institute takes on activities both here in Canada, and abroad. The IOG generates funding mainly through its own programs (e.g. contract work and participant fees), however, it also receives funding from government sources.
