National Student Paper Competition on the Future of the Public Service
Launched in 2013, the first edition of the competition focused on ideas and research related to the Blueprint 2020 vision, an initiative launched by the Clerk of the Privy Council inviting federal public servants and Canadians to contribute their ideas on how to build public service excellence.
Since then, the competition has continued inviting master's and PhD students to submit their ideas for improving the federal public service and Canada's future.
The School strives to introduce innovative ideas and bright new thinkers to government, to support the high-performing public service of today and tomorrow. The School is therefore proud to partner once again with the Institute of Public Administration of Canada (IPAC) and the academic community in organizing the sixth National Student Paper Competition on the Future of the Public Service for 2019.
