National Public Service Week

Transcript - National Public Service Week 2019

Every National Public Service Week, we celebrate the extraordinary work our world-class public servants do for Canadians.

For more than 150 years, our public servants have been serving Canadians with dedication, making huge differences within and outside our country’s borders.

That’s why Canada’s public service has been ranked the best in the world. Congradulations!

So, during this National Public Service Week, I want to personally thank you for your hard work and services to our country and your fellow Canadians.

This week, and every week, we’re committed to working with you.

Thank you to Canada’s public servants. 

Proudly serving Canadians!

Federal public servants deliver a wide range of programs and services that support the work of the Government of Canada and the needs of Canadians in their day-to-day lives. The government would not function without the commitment of the individuals who make up the public service.


National Public Service Week (NPSW) was created in 1992, following the passage of the National Public Service Week: Serving Canadians Better Act. Its objective is to “recognize the value of the services rendered by federal public service employees” and to “acknowledge the contribution of federal public service employees to the federal administration.” NPSW was designed to promote pride in and recognition of the public service of Canada by providing internal recognition, and by raising Canadians' awareness of the excellence of the public service.

In accordance with the Act, every year throughout Canada, the third week of the month of June is known as “National Public Service Week,” with the week ending on the third Saturday of the month and beginning the previous Sunday. In 2019, NPSW will take place from June 9 to 15.
