Earn a certificate in market-based tools for sustainable development!
This online professional development course, offered with support from The McConnell Foundation, will draw from Canada’s Ecofiscal Commission’s reports on congestion pricing, water and wastewater user fees and a forthcoming report on solid waste pricing. It also follows on our successful course offered at the federal and provincial levels, “Designing market-based instruments for the environment”.
We have designed the course with the needs and challenges of municipal employees in mind. To avoid travel approvals and keep it affordable, participants will be able to complete the course online. It is divided into five live and interactive webinars, combined with online case studies and exercises. The webinars will also be recorded to allow for even greater flexibility.
Comments from previous Ecofiscal courses
“Kudos to presenters: passionate, engaging, and knowledgeable”
“Very useful and unique course that fills a training gap in the available courses”
“I think this is a course that would also benefit Municipal governments”
“Very good quality/price ratios! The quality of the instruction is amazing. I will continue following the work of the Ecofiscal Commission.”
Course instructors include leading Canadian experts on market-based tools, combined with current and former municipal practitioners. The dynamic teaching styles of Ecofiscal Commission chair Chris Ragan and other Ecofiscal Commissioners such as Nancy Olewiler have received strong praise from participants in previous courses.
The course is broken out into five different modules, with each module including a 2-hour live and interactive webinar lecture and discussion as well as an online case study or exercise. You can mix and match the different modules, but module 1 is mandatory as it is foundational. Sign up for all five webinars to receive a discount and a certificate!
