Reconciliation and Building New Relationships
The idea that good government is built on good working relationships has been at the heart of IPAC’s mandate for 70 years. Ongoing dialogue, sharing knowledge, and exchanging experiences between public sector leaders have contributed to strong public institutions across Canada.
Now IPAC is working to support new and better relationships with Indigenous governments, organizations and administrators: relationships built on respect, cooperation and partnership.
Our Indigenous Government Program at IPAC is
- Creating regular opportunities for learning exchanges between non-Indigenous and Indigenous administrators across Canada on topics of mutual interest
- Building the capacity of non-Indigenous public servants to work better with Indigenous peoples, their governments and agencies, and
- Partnering with others to support the growth of administrative expertise, innovation and best practice in Indigenous governments
