What we do
Public Governance International > About PGI > What we do

Public Governance International (PGI) was created in 2009. We are dedicated to building the capacity of public institutions, public organizations and public sector leaders to face the challenges of serving and governing in the 21st century.

We work with a variety of international partners at the national, regional and municipal levels to capture insight, generate and test ideas that work in practice in a diversity of contexts and circumstances.

We are the host organization of the New Synthesis (NS) Initiative; a collaborative international effort launched to explore the new frontiers of public governance to modernize public administration in theory and in practice.

Reflecting on the National Public Service Week of Canada, PGI has dug deep into our archives to share the first-ever digital Annual Report to the Prime Minister on the Public Service of Canada. The Sixth Annual Report was Madame Bourgon’s final report to the Prime Minister of Canada as she was preparing to move on from her role as the first female Clerk of the Privy Council. Her final report is reflective of her esteemed tenure as Clerk, one that continuously pushed boundaries and guided the Public Service of Canada through an unprecedented period of change to prepare for the challenges of the 21st century.
