2017 Blueprint 2020 Innovation Fair
On May 31, 2017, the Public Service Renewal Secretariat of the Privy Council Office is pleased to be organizing the Third Annual Blueprint 2020 Innovation Fair. The Fair is organized for public servants, by public servants, and provides a unique opportunity for departments and agencies to learn from each other and showcase the impacts of our everyday excellence in the workplace and in our service to Canadians. New this year is a public-facing component taking place along the Sparks Street Mall from 10 AM to 6 PM. Featuring more than 30 displays from close to 20 departments and agencies, the public is invited to learn more about how Public Service organizations, such as Canadian Heritage, Parks Canada, Canada Border Services Agency and Global Affairs Canada, are providing innovative service to Canadians.
In tune with the Canada 150 celebrations, the Fair also offers a unique opportunity to showcase the Public Service's own 150th anniversary and to highlight the results and outcomes we have achieved over the years for Canada and Canadians.

In the National Capital Region
In the National Capital Region, the Fair will take place at the Department of Finance and the Treasury Board Secretariat at 90 Elgin Street. Here, we will showcase examples of excellence and innovation in how we support the government, as well as how we are building a healthy and productive workforce.
For the first time
The Fair will also include an outdoor component along Sparks Street – the first time in Innovation Fair history – focusing on excellent service to Canadians.
Coast to coast to coast
This year, regional events have taken place on May 10, 2017 across the country to reflect the reality that 60% of public servants that work outside the National Capital Region in communities from coast to coast to coast.
Building on 2016
At last year’s Fair, more than 2,000 public servants attended in-person, 2,500 participated via webcast, and over 400 public servants worked to make this event possible. The President of the Treasury Board gave opening remarks alongside the Deputy Minister of Finance, the Secretary of the Treasury Board and the Clerk of the Privy Council, highlighting the power of this venue to bring together all levels of Public Servants and the government we serve.
There is an excellent opportunity to capitalize on this success to expand the reach to more public servants and, for the first time, to the Canadians we serve. The Fair will enable us to not only develop meaningful relationships across the country, but also to build on the momentum of the day and spread innovative ways of working across the federal Public Service.
