Abstract
This thesis examines the effectiveness of the Council of the Federation as an intergovernmental institution. Through an analysis of sixteen communiqué periods, the researcher found that the Council of the Federation is an effective intergovernmental institution because it facilitates the identification of common priorities among premiers. This research demonstrates that weak institutionalization does not amount to ineffective institutions. The analysis also concluded that interprovincial collaboration has become the most salient element of the Council of the Federation communiqués. Overall, this thesis offers insight into what effectiveness means in Canadian intergovernmental institutions.
