About Institute on Governance (IoG)
Founded in 1990, the Institute on Governance (IOG) is an independent, Canada-based not-for-profit public interest institution with its head office in Ottawa and an office in Toronto. Our mission is ‘advancing better governance in the public interest’, which we accomplish by exploring, developing and promoting the principles, standards and practices which underlie good governance in the public sphere, both in Canada and abroad.
The IOG’s vision is to be the pre-eminent, independent Canadian source of knowledge, research and advice on governance and its continuous improvement.
The IOG works with a wide range of clients and partners, including governments, communities, business and public organizations to assess their governance and to develop programs for improvement. While much of our activity takes place in our home base in Canada, we also work extensively with international partners and governments
