About the Chair

FSS Lobby

In November 2005, Stephen Jarislowsky of Montreal made a generous donation to the University of Ottawa that enabled the University to create the Jarislowsky Chair in Public Sector Management.  Centering the Chair in the nation's capital is the perfect place to establish a chair dedicated to studying and commenting on public sector management.

With the enthusiastic support of the Faculty of Social Sciences, the Chair will not be restricted to any one facet of public management but will encourage interdisciplinary work in a number of faculties at the University of Ottawa and elsewhere.  As a result, a special effort will be made to encourage work in all aspects of public management including governance, human resources, policy-making, service standards and the implementation of best practices.

While research will form the basis of the work of the Chair holder, efforts will also be made to expand the range of executive courses and to encourage more sharing of best practices in Canada.
