Abstract:

In August 2009, Canada's Public Policy Forum launched the Public Engagement Project, a multi-year initiative to help governments build the capacity for effective public engagement. Involving more than 2,000 public servants across Canada and abroad, the project began with a series of seminars and workshops before graduating to pilot or demonstration projects to test the new ideas. What we learned was consolidated in a book-length report, Rescuing Policy: The Case for Public Engagement, written by Don Lenihan and published by the Forum in 2012. The Government of Ontario was a highly engaged participant in the Public Engagement Project and so in the spring of 2012 the Forum approached the government to suggest that it launch a pilot. Shortly after, the Ministry of Consumer Services, (now known as the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services), responded with an invitation to the Forum to design and lead a public engagement process to renew the Condominium Act, 1998. This case study examines the various stages and steps in the process and gathers together key lessons learned along the way. It shows how public engagement can reduce policy tensions between stakeholders to arrive at shared solutions that can then serve as the basis for policy and legislation. The study is intended to help officials in the Ontario public service--and across the country--understand how and why public engagement works. We trust it will help build confidence in the approach and encourage other ministries and governments to undertake projects of their own.
