The National Capital Region chapter of the Institute of Public Administration of Canada is the largest local chapter in Canada, counting over 500 members. We organize regular events and speaker series with guests representing the municipal, provincial and federal governments, the private sector, as well as academics. We are involved in recognition programs such as the Lieutenant Governor's Medal for Distinction in Public Administration, as well as the National Student & Thought Leadership Award.

Our mission is to foster a community of excellence in public service in the National Capital Region and to advance the objectives of the Institute of Public Administration of Canada.

In order to carry out our mission, we:

  • Provide a network for individuals working in public administration at all levels of government.

  • Provide opportunities for speakers and interested individuals to showcase and discuss topical public administration issues.

  • Support students to make original contributions in the field of public administration.

  • Work in collaboration with other partners in public administration.
