About IPAC

The Institute of Public Administration of Canada (IPAC) is Canada’s leading professional organization supporting excellence in the country’s public sector. With 19 regional groups across the nation, our members include public servants, academics and others interested in public administration. The Institute also works closely with all levels of government to promote quality public services and practices. IPAC is a recognized leader in research, training, knowledge sharing and outreach including hosting a large number of conferences and events held regionally and nationally. Since the early 1990’s, the Institute has helped to export Canadian public sector expertise around the world. As a registered charity, we are proud to offer services in both official languages.
