Most public servants (58%) are employed outside of the National Capital Region.
A message from the President of the Canada Public Service Agency
This is the second issue of it’s MY day, which profiles how 21 public servants make a difference in the lives of Canadians. Some of the public servants profiled here are among this year’s recipients of a Public Service Award of Excellence. All are dedicated professionals helping to make our country one of the best in the world.
This issue of it’s MY day coincides with National Public Service Week, when we take the time to proudly recognize our profession. This year, we celebrate 140 years of the Public Service of Canada and 100 years of the Public Service Commission.
The stories in this magazine serve as examples of the contributions of the men and women across the Public Service. Although they work in many different areas, such as volcanic safety, business development and increasing awareness of aging in society, they all have the same passion: improving the quality of life for Canadians. I invite you to take a few moments to read and reflect on these snapshots.
Let’s celebrate our excellence and our commitment to service,
two of the values that have characterized the Public Service throughout its history. We
are building on a solid foundation as we pursue the renewal of the Public Service for
Nicole Jauvin President
