The Committee on Canadian Issues (CCI) is unique among GFOA’s standing committees. It is tasked with helping GFOA meet the needs of its Canadian members, giving the U.S.-based association’s staff the guidance and input needed to better serve its international members. Just as GFOA’s strategic roles shift to meet the ever-changing needs of its membership, CCI’s role also shifts as our Canadian members’ needs evolve over time. CCI’s members, however, are always guided by a shared and sustained desire for:
- 1Providing Canadian context and perspective,
- GFOA-sponsored training on Canadian-relevant issues, and
- A unified voice to help inform Canadian fiscal policy.
