2nd annual IPAC Deloitte Public Sector Leadership Awards recognizes bold, innovative projects

Toronto, Ontario (Nov. 6, 2009) – Participants at the second annual IPAC public sector leadership conference in Toronto took a break yesterday evening to honour the winners of the 2009 IPAC Deloitte Public Sector Leadership Awards. Coast-to- coast, this year’s winners demonstrate a range of achievements that, individually and collectively, reinforce the benefits of public sector leadership to all Canadians.”These awards help foster a culture of innovation and support the inspirational work of public servants across the country,” said Paul Macmillan, Deloitte’s national Public Sector practice leader. “Canadians deserve to know just how hard and well their public servants work for them and the public servants deserve an opportunity to showcase the fruit of their labour,” he added.

The leaders of public sector organizations are one of Canada’s most important assets. Recognizing and building the cadre of public sector leaders is a critical ingredient in the success of our country and our communities. This national awards program encourages and acknowledges outstanding leadership within federal, provincial and municipal levels of government, as well as in health care, educational and not-for-profit organizations across the country.

“We have only scratched the surface in terms of recognizing the work being done within the public sector, said Gabriel Sekaly, Chief Executive Officer of IPAC. “With every passing year, we are more and more excited about the leadership and innovation that we’re seeing. It couldn’t be a better time to be a proud Canadian,” concluded Sekaly.
