IPAC was founded as an association of public servants, academics, and others interested in public administration. Rooted in its 19 Regional Groups across Canada, it is a membership-based organization that creates knowledge networks and leads public administration and policy research in Canada. From its inception, IPAC has considered research in public administration and policy as one of its objectives. Since launching its journal, Canadian Public Administration (Administration Publique du Canada) in 1958, IPAC has produced studies on public service and governance. IPAC research has specialized in regulatory innovation.
