Our first public sector ethics conference, held in September, 2016, was a great success. We were pleased to continue our collaboration with IPAC, the University of Toronto and Osgoode Hall law schools, as well as the federal, Ontario and Toronto integrity commissioners to host a second conference, on May 31st and June 1st of this year. Panels and breakout sessions featured distinguished speakers and moderators. There were over 150 attendees from all three levels of government, including academics, lawyers, and many other public service roles, all sharing a common concern for competent, efficient, fair and honest government. Feedback from the conference was, once again, overwhelmingly positive.
The proceedings of the conference have been recorded in an issue of IPAC’s magazine, Public Sector Management. I want to thank all the conference organizers, speakers, and panel members.
