The Conference Board of Canada publishes two periodicals related to governance and risk. These periodicals feature leading Canadian and global thinkers and practitioners who share their perspectives on where the practice of governance and risk management are heading and what the key issues are likely to be in the coming years. They offer a combination of theoretical analysis and practical applications that are intended to help readers clarify their thinking about organizational issues and reach decisions to address their challenges.

The Conference Board of Canada is seeking to advance the practice of GCR in Canada. If you are interested in being featured as an author in our upcoming periodicals, please contact Michael Bassett.
