Marquee Moments in Public Service History

Marquee Moments in Public Service History

Description

9/11

The School is pleased to invite public servants to the third installment of Marquee Moments, our series on historical milestones in the Public Service of Canada. This event features a panel discussion of the events of September 11, 2001, and their implications for Canada.

On that day, the Government of Canada took immediate action to counter threats and to safeguard Canadians and international travellers. Communities in the country rose to the occasion to meet the needs of passengers on flights diverted to Canadian airports, and the public policy measures enacted as a result are still in many cases with us today.

Join us to hear from some of the senior public servants who had key responsibilities on that day and on the days that followed. Learn about what it was like for them after 9/11, the repercussions on domestic and foreign policy, and how Canada would be forever altered.

Speakers

  • Margaret Bloodworth, Former national security advisor to the Prime Minister and associate secretary to the Cabinet; former deputy minister, Transport Canada
  • Rob Fonberg, Distinguished Fellow, Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy, and former deputy secretary to the Cabinet at the Privy Council Office
  • Louis Ranger, Distinguished Fellow, Canada School of Public Service, and former associate deputy minister, Transport Canada

Moderator

Taki Sarantakis, President of the Canada School of Public Service
