City Liaisons Program
What is the Liaison Program?
In order to operate effectively, CAGFO needs an up-to-date database of the government finance officers in Canada. CAGFO currently has about 4,000 people on its database; 40% of are members and 60% have subscribed to regular email communication. The City Liaisons Program allows us to keep our database up-to-date, so that we can stay in touch with members and supporters. We aim to have a liaison in each of the 100 largest municipalities in Canada.
What does the Liaison person do?
There are three main tasks which each Liaison performs, the first is expected and the other two are optional:
1. Ensure the accuracy of the CAGFO database at an organization level. Once a quarter, each Liaison will receive from CAGFO a copy of subscribers and members for their organization for confirmation and updating.
2. Invite the people on the list that are not already members to join the association. Membership is free and not tied to an organization, but to the individual.
3. Inform the person responsible for hiring Finance Professionals in the organization. that they can post vacant positions simultaneously on the CAGFO job board and CivicJobs.ca for just $250.
Who are the Liaisons?
The list below shows the largest 100 municipalities in Canada and together with the name of the Liaison person. If your municipality does not have anyone assigned, please feel free to volunteer by emailing email@example.com.
