In this age of disruption, as Canada moves tentatively toward an uncertain future, how we govern ourselves, how policies and practices are made, executed and scrutinized is very important. In partnership with the School of Policy Studies at Queen’s University, the first session will examine the world as reshaped by COVID and the Canadian experience of it. 

Reflecting on the new Speech from the Throne, speakers will address the implications of the pandemic on governance, the executive and accountability, the public service and the role of the central agencies going forward.
