NEW PRESIDENT AND CEO APPOINTED FOR INSTITUTE ON GOVERNANCE

Aurele Theriault, Chair of the Board of Directors of the Institute on Governance (IOG), is pleased to announce the appointment of David McLaughlin as the Institute’s new President and CEO.

“We are very pleased that David has joined our team to bring vital new leadership rooted in his extensive federal and provincial governance experience and record of public policy accomplishment” said Theriault. “The IOG’s long and trusted record of promoting good governance practices in Canada’s public institutions combined with David’s leadership experiences will serve us well to better position the Institute to serve government at all levels as well as environmental, social and governance minded companies and organizations across Canada.”

McLaughlin brings over thirty years of governance experience serving most recently as Clerk of the Executive Council, Cabinet Secretary, Deputy Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, and Head of the Public Service in the Government of Manitoba. His full biography can be found here.

“Good governance is essential to public trust in our public institutions and democracy” said McLaughlin.  “I am delighted to have the opportunity to lead the IOG and its dedicated team at this crucial moment in Canadian public life”, McLaughlin continued. “I can’t think of a more important need at this time in Canada.”

McLaughlin was chosen following an extensive search process over six months, supported by an independent executive search firm overseen by Sarah Paquet, Vice-Chair of the IOG Board of Directors.

“We attracted a number of strong candidates and were well supported by the professional team at Boyden’s Executive Search to find the right candidate to lead the Institute at this time” said Paquet.

The Institute on Governance is an independent, not-for-profit think tank based in Ottawa whose mission is advancing better governance in the public interest nationally and internationally.
