    "Renewal of the Public Service has never been more crucial than during

Management Excellence; Innovation; Excellence in Citizen-focused Service
Delivery; Employment Equity and Diversity; Official Languages; Youth; and
Exemplary Contribution under Extraordinary Circumstances.

a country, the need for talented and dedicated public servants has never been
greater" said Kevin G. Lynch, Clerk of the Privy Council. "All public servants
can draw inspiration from the creativity and commitment of this year's
