The Institute of Public Administration of Canada (IPAC) will host its national conference in Charlottetown this summer from August 20-23 at the PEI Convention Centre.

The conference theme - Strong Foundations, Sustainable Futures—will explore the topics of sustainability, leadership and policy innovation.

  • Joshua Frame, national chair of the Federal Youth Network and chair of Future Leaders of Ontario
  • Senator Murray Sinclair, former chief commissioner of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission
