Clerk’s remarks at the ISED inclusiveness symposium

| Privy Council Office | speeches

As a country and as a public service, we are on a journey where diversity is not enough. In fact, diversity is a foundation where it is important to be representative and inclusive.

Clerk’s Remarks at the Policy Community Conference

| Privy Council Office | speeches

The Public Service of Canada will be celebrating, as will the country, 150 years together of serving Canadians and their governments. It is a proud tradition and we have built generation on generation, adapting to the circumstances of our country, of the world, of the governments we serve, and the expectations of Canadians. That journey is not over and will continue into the future. Ongoing renewal of how we go about our business is something that affects all of us as public servants, and it certainly affects the policy role within the public service.
