Welcome to the Institute of Public Administration of Canada (IPAC). We’re a dynamic association of public servants, academics and others interested in public administration.

Since our founding in 1947, IPAC has led public administration research in Canada and has exported successful Canadian public sector expertise around the world. Our mission is to promote excellence in public service and we do that a number of ways: through our prestigious publications, conferences, awards of excellence and knowledge networks. We are membership-based with regional groups across the country.

You’ll find this website an excellent resource whether you’re new to public service or an experienced public servant. Feel free to explore the site -- and the benefits of membership.
