Program Resources


In view of the current context of the COVID-19 pandemic, programming has been adapted to be delivered virtually until in-person sessions can resume as per public health guidelines.


The Program invites distinguished current and former 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 over the past few years.

The Certificate Program is based at Odell House, a restored nineteenth century residence located at 180 Waller Street South, close to the Rideau Canal in downtown Ottawa.

The Program maintains a dedicated website where participants can access Program agendas and presentations, as well as reading materials and other resources.
