About the Event

**Bonus Leadership Workshop October 13, 1:30 – 3:30 pm**

Since 2006, Public Policy Forum has hosted an annual Fall Lecture to explore the critical role the public service plays in preserving a resilient and vibrant Canadian society. The event has featured lectures and panels on pressing public service and policy issues and since 2019 has included a workshop on corresponding topics led by the PPF Academy to help established and emerging public servants develop practical frameworks for policy solutions.

This year’s live virtual Fall Lecture focuses on Policy Making in a Time of Pandemic. We will explore and reflect on how Canada’s real-time response to COVID-19 has pushed all levels of government to embrace uncertainly and to work collaboratively in order to mitigate the impact on the lives and livelihoods of Canadians. The evening will commence with Dr. Bonnie Henry, Provincial Health Officer, Government of British Columbia, as our keynote speaker in a fireside chat with Helen Branswell, Canadian infectious diseases and global health reporter at STAT News.

Also featured will be an expert panel with Dr. Bonnie Henry, Provincial Health Officer, Government of British Columbia, Laura Lee Langley, Deputy Minister, Office of the Premier, Government of Nova Scotia, Peter Wallace, Secretary of the Treasury Board of Canada and Saad Rafi, Consultant and former Senior Advisor to the City of Toronto on COVID-19 recovery and rebuilding.

As a bonus, the PPF Academy will hold a virtual leadership workshop from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., the same day, to explore and reflect on case studies and examples of public service innovation and leadership in response to COVID-19 in interactive small group discussions with participants from across Canada.

Your registration fee includes, the leadership workshop, networking session and the Fall Lecture.
