Canadian Public Policy Network

The CPPN is a Public Policy Research Community of scholars from around Canada interested in public policy. 

About the Network

Welcome to the Canadian Public Policy Network (CPPN). The CPPN has been created to promote and further public policy studies in Canada. Modeled on the Australian Public Policy Network, the CPPN will enhance communication between public policy scholars and others in the public policy community across the country and abroad. The CPPN works through the International Public Policy Association (IPPA) and also acts as a Research Group within the Canadian Association of Programmes in Public Administration (CAPPA/IPAC).

It will sponsor panels at CAPPA and other meetings and hold its own workshop/conference each fall.

Anyone wishing to join the network and learn about planned activities for 2020 can click on the "Join the Network" button on the left-hand menu or write to the organizers at
