The Government Support Centre


As public servants, learning how to effectively manage uncertainty and mitigate any potential impact a crisis may have on government processes and teams is key. We recognize that leading and supporting your team is complex, and there are many questions and lots of unknowns. We have developed the below solutions to help.

Since 2002, we have built our learning and development solutions using an approach that blends modern and human elements. We aim to support your team with relevant tools, information, and practical advice. And by making these tools available anywhere, anytime, it will be easier for your team to access support when it is needed most.

Our team is ready to impact your team and leaders with the expertise acquired through 18 years and hundreds of government partners like The Office of the Auditor-General, Office of the Prime Minister, Global Affairs Canada & others with virtual learning and coaching solutions.
