Developed exclusively for elected and appointed municipal leaders in Saskatchewan.
The Municipal Leadership Development Program (MLDP) is a series of modules or workshops developed exclusively for elected and appointed municipal leaders in Saskatchewan. The modules target specific issues of importance to urban, rural and northern municipalities. Mayors, reeves, councillors and municipal staff are able to benefit from this program that is designed to strengthen local government leadership.
MLDP is presently structured around six one-day modules. There are two sessions of modules held each year, a fall session and a winter session. Modules can be taken in any order based on the dates and locations that best suit your schedule.
Developed in 2003, the MLDP is a joint partnership of the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM), the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association (SUMA), New North – SANC Services Inc., the Rural Municipal Administrators’ Association (RMAA), the Urban Municipal Administrators’ Association of Saskatchewan (UMAAS), and the Ministry of Government Relations. This program was designed to be responsive to the needs of municipal officials and therefore seeks continuous feedback through the municipal associations regarding the education and training needs of municipalities.
