Report on Public Service Renewal Results: letter from the Deputy Ministers

Letter from the Deputy Ministers

It’s our pleasure to provide you with Environment and Climate Change Canada’s Report on Public Service Renewal Results. We’re proud to highlight some of the experiences of our department’s employees in promoting a respectful workplace, onboarding and recruitment, and other actions to renew the public service. This year, we took a different approach to the traditional report--we created short videos of public servants telling their stories of public-service renewal, in their own words.

Over the past year, we’ve continued to make strides toward a renewed-public service. We focused on creating a respectful workplace through big and small actions. From our mental-health strategy to small everyday actions, our department is working toward a psychologically healthy and safe work environment. Our focus on youth engagement and employee development helps make Environment and Climate Change Canada a great place for new recruits, and it will help address anticipated demographic changes in the public service. Through Blueprint 2020, we’re striving to create conditions that support innovation in our department. Employees have wholeheartedly embraced a vision of a renewed department by enthusiastically seeking opportunities to improve their workplace and enhance collaboration--within our department, with other departments, and with Canadians.

Our journey isn’t over. Although we’ve made great strides in public-service renewal, we are committed to continuous improvement. We are dedicated to seek out opportunities to work more effectively and efficiently. By taking smart risks, trying new approaches, and collaborating, we can continue making a difference in the lives of Canadians, providing them with a safe, clean, and sustainable environment for present and future generations.
