Welcome to the Canadian Public Sector Excellence Network (CPSEN) website.

CPSEN and our former organization, the Canadian Public Sector Quality Association (CPSQA), this year is celebrating 20 years of service to Canada's broader public sector. 

Together we have served the public sector with quality and, now, excellence quarterly networking meetings and with our one-day annual events. We hope you will find your visit worthwhile as you learn more about what CPSEN has to offer all those working in the broader public sector. 

Our Mission Statement:

We support public sector professionals in implementing organizational excellence by:

  • Engaging members in practical and affordable professional development events;
  • Providing information on successful practices via our website; and
  • Facilitating professional networks, communities of practices and knowledge sharing.

Our Vision:

Our vision is to be recognized as the leader in supporting a dynamic community of practice implementing organizational excellence within the public sector.

Our Annual Events

CPEN was pleased to be able to offer another Fair last November, at which attendees were able to participate in a very professional program charged with excellent keynote speakers, professional development sessions and - a new program feature for us - a Talk Show. Be sure to visit our Annual Event section to learn more. There will be more to keep in mind as work has begun on our next annual event, the CPSEN-Excellence Canada Symposium 2017. It is anticipated that the format will be similar to that of our 2015 Excellence Fair that was very well received by attendees.

The CPSEN Board met recently to begin preparatory work leading to the Symposium that will be held February 7th, 2017. Volunteers are lining up to join our Planning Committee and we will soon begin work on the Symposium Program. Here is a photo of Board Members working on the key elements of the upcoming Symposium.
