“Make a leadership difference”
The Local Government Leadership (LGL) Institute is dedicated to helping civic officials make a leadership difference in local government throughout Canada and overseas.
Local government officials do not gain legitimacy through a license to practice like a medical doctor. It comes from adding value to local government processes and community futures while rooting themselves in professional values.
The term ‘leadership’ was rarely used to describe either the political or managerial imperatives of local government. Now, perhaps the most important and commonly-shared understanding in the sector is that high-quality leadership is vital. It is the key to the continued improvement of the sector and its credibility and reputation with the public it serves.
The LGL Institute was established to assist civic officials in building their professional leadership competencies. Alumni of LGL programs have become a network world-wide sharing their challenges, expertise and success with others to transform their communities

Welcome to Alberta's Peer Network
You're constantly working to bring diverse groups of people together and get the job done.
The Peer Network for Dispute Resolution is a partnership that has created a group of peer mentors who municipal leaders can contact to obtain advice and/or assistance to help address local issues. Partnering organizations, including AAMDC, the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association, the Local Government Administration Association, and the Alberta Rural Municipal Administrators Association each have two mentors representing their association. Other partners that help guide the program include Alberta Municipal Affairs, the Society of Local Government Managers, and the Alberta Arbitration and Mediation Society.
Municipal disputes are a unique blend of issues and personalities. Municipal leaders who have successfully resolved disputes are in the best position to offer advice about the challenges of finding solutions that benefit all involved.
Consider calling one of our peer mentors. These senior leaders can talk to you about your unique situation, suggest alternatives and give you a hand when you need.
