National Public Service Week

National Public Service Week 2019.


What is National Public Service Week?

National Public Service Week (NPSW) was created in 1992, following the passage of the National Public Service Week: Serving Canadians Better Act, to recognize the importance of federal public service employees and to honour their service to Canadians. In accordance with the Act, the third week of the month of June is known as National Public Service Week in Canada. 

NPSW 2020 will take place from June 14 to 20.

Getting Involved

For the Federal Retirees community, participating in NPSW is especially important. It is not only an excellent opportunity to strengthen the image of Canada’s federal public service but, in showing ourselves to be active and engaged, we also raise awareness of the Association and increase its impact.

Check out the community event calendars and bulletins in your area and talk to your local Federal Retirees branch about NPSW events near you.

Local Public Service Superheroes

Public servants make a difference in the lives of Canadians every day. From keeping us safe to improving health care and inventing new life-changing products and technologies, Canadian public servants truly serve the public.

Chances are that you know outstanding public servants who have gone above and beyond for Canada and for Canadians. Why not take this opportunity to shine a light on local public service superheroes and celebrate their contributions to society?

Your stories bring life to our advocacy work and drive our campaigns. If you have a story to share, or you know a Federal Retirees member who does, send a message to so we can follow up.
