IPAC’s 75th Annual Conference
Public Administration Amid Social Upheaval

Join us for the Institute of Public Administration of Canada's (IPAC’s) 75th conference on September 13-15. Our annual National Conference, IPAC 2023, is taking place in-person at the Delta Hotels by Marriott Ottawa City Centre.

IPAC’s Annual Conference in Ottawa will focus on the key role of public administration in a time of instability and social change.

The conference will address key issues such as the housing crisis, AI & Chat GPT, digital government, mental health, municipal innovation, immigration, and labour shortages. An Indigenous-led panel will discuss how public servants can collaborate more successfully with Indigenous governments.

The United States Ambassador to Canada, David L. Cohen, will address the conference, as will Montreal City Manager, Serge Lamontagne, winner of IPAC’s top honour, the Vanier Medal.

Employee engagement in the world of hybrid work is certain to be a popular topic.
