The Program invites current and former distinguished senior federal officials and other experts to address the participants. We also call on professors and senior fellows associated with the University of Ottawa’s Graduate School of Public and International Affairs (GSPIA), and other parts of the University. Annex A provides examples of the exceptional speakers who have shared their insights with Cohorts II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII and IX over the past years.
The Certificate Program is based at Odell House, a restored nineteenth century residence located at 180 Waller Street, close to the Rideau Canal and the Desmarais Building (55 Laurier Avenue East), which houses the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs. Program events will take place mainly at Odell House, or the newly built Faculty of Social Sciences Building.
The Program provides a dedicated website where participants can access Program agendas and presentations, as well as reading materials and other resources.
