Quarterly Network Update Calls
It is important to have the latest news and information to make strategic decisions. Therefore, we host Network Update Calls every quarter to provide our Network Supporters with updates on global and local activities, events and trends.
You should have received calendar invites at the start of the year to join these network update calls. If you have not received these calendar invitations, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Delegations and Consultations
Based on the Global Compact Network Canada’s extensive engagement with several Ministries at the Government of Canada, we secure and offer high-level meetings with key representatives in Ottawa for our Patron and Visionary Supporters.
These meetings and events provide an incredible opportunity for our Patron and Visionary Supporters to discuss with the Canadian federal government about how to advance the Sustainable Development Goals, showcase company sustainability solutions, and explore opportunities for partnership and collaboration for greater impact! View summary on the 2018 Ottawa Delegation.
Sustainability Spotlight Webinar Series
The GCNC provides platforms for Network Supporters to demonstrate expertise and leadership. One of these platforms is the Sustainability Spotlight Webinar Series, which allows Patron and Visionary Supporters to host a webinar to showcase their company’s sustainability report and/or initiatives related to the Sustainable Development Goals or the 10 Principles of the UN Global Compact.
