GTA Program

In 2009 the Local Government Program began a partnership with the municipalities  of Newmarket, York Region, Durham Region, and Richmond Hill to offer an on-site GDPA program to their employees.  The program successfully ran from Fall 2010 to Winter 2012 and the first cohort graduated in Summer 2012.  A second round began in Winter 2013 and completed in Winter 2015.  The third cohort added the City of Vaughan and began in Fall 2016.

This stream if the GDPA program is currently on hold. Interested applicants are encouraged to review the Online & On Campus GDPA streams.


The Local Government Program welcomes inquiries from municipalities and agencies interested in similar arrangements.
