Annual Gordon Osbaldeston Lecture

When: Thursday, November 27, 2014 - 17:00 - 21:00

Where: Ottawa, Château Laurier

An aging population, globalization and interdependence requires an innovative and modern public service. This means an organization that can vigilantly identify and creatively respond to the complex issues that will shape our world. It means considering new approaches, adopting new tools and developing new skills. And it demands a public service that understands emerging public administration and policy trends.

The Annual Gordon F. Osbaldeston Lecture aims to encourage this understanding through dialogue about and within the public service. Every year, a prominent and accomplished Canadian from business, academia or government speaks to the challenges facing the public service and how it might best respond. This annual event honours Gordon Osbaldeston's distinguished 35-year career as a public servant, which included three years as Clerk of the Privy Council (1982-1985). The lecture raises awareness about the challenges, issues and opportunities facing Canada's public service.


"How Canada can Lead on the Economy and the Environment"  

"We are very pleased to continue this Ottawa tradition with a lecture by one of Canada's, outstanding corporate leaders, Lorraine Mitchelmore," said David Mitchell, President & CEO of Canada's Public Policy Forum. "This 9th annual Osbaldeston Lecture will focus on how Canada can lead on both the economy and the environment."
