Crisis Management Within A Political Environment:
A Self-learning Program for Federal Public Service Managers

Tunagate, Oka, Somalia, the Turbot War-words that conjure up instant images in the minds of Canadians. Seemingly unconnected events except they do have one common theme - they rivetted the attention of Parliament Hill. Crises such as these generate public anxiety, and place exceptional demands on government.
Crisis Management Within a Political Environment provides the practical guidelines for developing and activating crisis management plans. The program combines video and print components that are ideal for self-learners and group participants alike.
"While the players change and the sensitivities are different, I believe Crisis Management will help senior people and managers outside the federal government develop the basic tools and techniques for managing crises as they happen in their job settings," says George Pilpe, an advisor with Environment Canada and a key developer of the program.
He mentioned municipal and provincial governments, private sector companies with high public profiles, researchers, scientists and the academic community as good candidates for the product.
The 62-minute video and the manual are divided into five modules, each depicting a different step in handling a crisis. The final module brings everything together in a simulated crisis scenario designed to involve and challenge the viewer and reinforce the principles learned in the first four modules.
Crises in a political environment can be tough challenges. They are also inevitable. It makes sense to plan before they happen while time is still a luxury.

The History of the Vote in Canada

What factors have affected voter turnout in Canadian elections since the eighteenth century? When did women win the right to vote in Canada? How many referendums have been held in Canada since Confederation and what did we learn from them? Fascinating questions with intriguing answers. And you`ll find them in the soon-to-be-released History of the Vote in Canada -- prepared especially to mark the 75th anniversary of Elections Canada, the non-partisan agency of parliament responsible for the conduct of elections and referendums. Richly illustrated with historical documents, artifacts, proclamations and cartoons, and enhanced with anecdotes and quotes from famous personages, the book delves into an aspect of Canadian political history that has never been fully explored until now. The History of the Vote in Canada deals with elections both before and after Confederation, as it traces the sometimes rocky journey to the modern ballot box. Governor General Romeo LeBlanc and Chief Electoral Officer Jean Pierre Kingsley are both featured in the foreword.
