Discover Our Communities of Practice
One of the many benefits of being a member of IAP2 Canada is the ability to connect with other public participation (P2) practitioners in similar fields.
The purpose of Communities of Practice (CoP) is to provide members with a way to meet other practitioners, extend networks, learn from each other, and share ideas and issues. Members build their skills and knowledge in their particular industry, while supporting others. Groups can support professionals at all stages of development.
An important aspect is to provide a safe, confidential space for members to share issues they may be having and access a ‘brains trust’ to benefit from the experiences of others. Many engagement practitioners work alone or in small groups, so these groups will provide valuable encouragement, support, development and a sounding board.
The Indigenous Engagement CoP is building a community of P2 practitioners and members of Indigenous communities who are committed to advancing meaningful engagement with Indigenous Peoples in Canada.
The North American Energy Sector CoP is a community of P2 practitioners and members of energy communities throughout North America who are committed to advancing meaningful engagement throughout the energy sector.
The Young Professionals Network CoP is building a community of young P2 practitioners who are new to the profession and who are committed to sharing and advancing their knowledge about engagement with other young professionals.
The Equity, Diversity, Inclusion CoP is building a community of P2 practitioners and members who are committed to advancing meaningful engagement with all peoples.
