Interested in what else will be happening during AGM weekend? 

There will also be a special presentation of the 2019 Gold Medal Award streamed live.

Since 1937, PIPSC has presented a Gold Medal Award to recognize professional public service employees whose outstanding work has led to the enhancement of public well-being and has promoted greater awareness of the role and value of public service employees in Canada and globally.

In addition to celebrating our members’ hard work and 100 years of progress in the public service, members will be debating resolutions and by-law revisions. 

Changes will be made to Institute by-laws for committees of the board on Environmental Action, Training and Education, Official Languages and Member Rights.  

Resolutions will be reviewed on proposed amendments to Institute by-laws, non-budgetary policy and budgetary resolutions

The Professionals Canada Preliminary Report will be proposed. It's supported by the CLC as a great opportunity for Canadian workers. 

We encourage all members to review the report, the proposed by-law amendments and to watch our keynote speeches to be a part of leading progress for Canada’s world-class public service.
