Public Administration Amid Social Upheaval

IPAC’s Annual Conference in Ottawa will focus on the key role of public administration in a time of instability and social change. The actions of government are more important now than ever.

The conference will address key issues such as the housing crisis, AI & Chat GPT, digital government, mental health, municipal innovation, energy transition, diversity, and immigration. An Indigenous-led session will provide you with knowledge, practical skills, strategies, and insights to build successful and respectful relationships with Indigenous Peoples. Employee engagement in the post-pandemic world is certain to be a popular topic.

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

We are pleased to note that this will be a fully in-person event.
