In Memoriam, Paul Dewar

The Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada (PIPSC) mourns the death of a true friend and supporter, former Ottawa-Centre MP Paul Dewar, who died of brain cancer at the age of 56 on February 6, 2019.

As MP between 2006 and 2015 for a riding with one of the highest concentrations of federal employees, Paul supported federal scientists in their fight for the right to speak and was an outspoken advocate for human rights, labour, strong community, and youth – in particular, through the recent establishment of Youth Action Now, an organization dedicated to “creating a world that is fair, inclusive and sustainable.”

In memory of Paul’s contributions to our community, PIPSC has made a donation to Youth Action Now.

PIPSC extends its deepest condolences to his family and friends.
