IPAC is a not-for-profit professional association, dedicated to promoting excellence in public administration in all orders of government.
The Toronto Region Group (TRG) serves IPAC members and others interested in public administration in the Toronto region. Each year, through its Program Committee, the TRG organizes topical events that address important and relevant issues in public administration, foster collaboration and innovation, and provide a forum for learning, exchanging ideas and networking. These events range from breakfast and lunch sessions with featured speakers or panels to full-day conferences. The Toronto Region Group together with the National Capital Region and Hamilton Region also hosts the prestigious Lieutenant Governor's Medal of Distinction in Public Administration, awarded annually to an individual who has demonstrated leadership and made a significant contribution to public administration throughout his or her career.
