Welcome to the west coast chapter of the International Association for Public Participation (IAP2) Canada. We are an Association seeking to promote and improve the practice of public participation with individuals, governments, institutions, and other entities that affect the public interest in British Columbia, Canada and around the world. This new website has been developed to support our members and to further the practice of public participation at the local level. Take a few moments to explore the site and see what new resources are available and learn how you can contribute.
P2 Drinks is our IAP2 BC networking series. We are hosting socials throughout this year so that we, as practitioners, can challenge our basic assumptions about P2.
In particular, why should we care about P2? Can we get more people to care? What does “meaningful engagement” mean?
Join us at these socials to discuss ideas that challenge us, make us take a step back, and re-examine our purpose, motivations, and the role of P2 in BC. Check back soon for events later this year in Vancouver and Victoria.
