Description of The School
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.
We fulfill our mission by…
- 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.
- Building capacity in government – The Master of Public Policy (MPP) trains students to hit the ground running with experience and expertise in policy development and analysis that is practical, hands-on and intensive.
- 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 in Western Canada.
