Ottawa, Ontario

The annual ADM Forum is the learning event of the year for the assistant deputy minister community. Interactive and conversation-based, this event is an ideal opportunity to hear from and ask questions of the following high-profile speakers:

  • Michael Wernick, Clerk of the Privy Council
  • Mary Deacon, Chair of the Bell Mental Health Initiative
  • Tanya van Biesen, Executive Director of Catalyst Canada, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating workplaces where diversity can thrive – TBC
  • David Coletto, pollster and CEO at Abacus Data, whose Canadian Millennial Research Practice helps clients connect and engage with the next generation – TBC

These discussions will explore ways to deliver on government priorities by reaching across boundaries—organizational, generational, sectoral, cultural—to lead a healthy, inclusive and respectful workforce into the future.

Senior leaders from across the public service are invited to come together for a day of learning, discussion and networking to forge a shared vision and culture that will shape the public service of tomorrow.
