Ian McCormack, Strategic Steps

Ian McCormack has a passion for good governance and lives in the professional space between elected officials and organizations’ senior management. His areas of interest include local government, libraries, housing, post-secondary education, health, non-profit organizations and community safety.

Ian believes that the expertise is often ‘in the room’, and only has to be teased out. He knows that culture is critical, so working on change must be done mindfully and it can take considerable time.

Ian is acutely aware of the relationship that municipalities must build with other orders of government so that citizens are best served. He is nationally accredited as a Certified Management Consultant (CMC) and is also certified as a change management practitioner.

As the President of Strategic Steps Inc. Ian and his associates focus on complex, independent projects, primarily within the Canadian local government realm. The company works on many projects that include strategy development and implementation, orientations, policy and bylaw updates, and reviews that help local governments get back on track.
