Welcome to CAPPA.ca

Welcome to the CAPPA/ACPAP website. CAPPA/ACPAP is a vibrant, growing organization representing schools and departments of public management, public administration and public policy across Canada. We offer an accreditation service to our member schools to recognise the excellent work they are doing in educating the next generation of public service professionals and PA scholars.

CAPPA/ACPAP also reaches out to individual scholars and practitioners through our research-oriented activities including the leading annual national research conference held each May, the national student public administration case competition held each February, and the national student essay writing contest held in partnership with the Canada School of Public Service. Through CAPPA/ACPAP, academics can build a strong network of colleagues interested in promoting excellence in public administration, management and policy studies. If you would like to be involved, please contact me.
