Remarks by Michael Wernick, Clerk of the Privy Council,  at the Black History Month Senior Leaders’ Learning Day

| Privy Council Office | speeches

We have to apply the lessons that we learned from the past ten years and face the challenges ahead in pieces, whether it is about recruitment, staffing, learning and development, meeting culture or changing the way we think, and who is brought into conversations.

2018 was a truly historic year with some real milestones, one of which was, of course, Bill C81, the Accessible Canada Act. It is one of those moments when a law passes through both Houses, gets Royal Assent, and bends the curve of this country’s history. Other such milestones that come to mind are the Official Languages Act, and the Charter of Rights. Canada will never be the same after that legislation is passed. It is a huge accomplishment and I know that many people in this room have helped shape it.
