About Us

We are building Canada’s conservative movement – by strengthening the knowledge, skills, ethical foundations, and networks of political practitioners.

WHAT WE DO

 

POLITICAL TRAINING

 

The Manning School of Practical Politics trains political participants to strengthen Canadian democracy.
