Organization Profile

The School of Public Policy provides a practical, global and focused perspective on public policy analysis and practice in three focus areas: International Policy, Social & Economic Policy and Energy & Environmental Policy
Our mission is to get public policy right in this country. This means strengthening Canada’s public service and bridging the gap between business, government and academia. These are the keys to unleashing Canada’s full economic potential – domestically and internationally. We fulfill our mission by:

BUILDING CAPACITY IN GOVERNMENT: The Master of Public Policy (MPP) program trains students to hit the ground running, offering them practical, hands-on and intensive experience in policy development and analysis.

PRODUCING INFLUENTIAL RESEARCH: Our research papers and communiqués offer in-depth analysis on the most pertinent issues of the day and create specific recommendations for policy makers.

IMPROVING PUBLIC POLICY DISCOURSE: We bridge the gap between business, government and academia by creating forums for communication and best-practice sharing.

PROVIDING A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE: The School of Public Policy has launched an initiative with two other highly regarded foreign policy institutes to create a critical mass of foreign policy expertise.
