School of Public Policy
Together, we will unleash Canada’s full economic potential
The School of Public Policy provides a practical, global and focused perspective on public policy analysis and practice.
During this crucial time of global transformation, we inform significant policy dialogue, bridging the gap between business, government and academia; providing forums for communication and best-practice sharing; and contributing specific recommendations to policy-makers.
We combine the energy and focus of a think-tank with the peer-reviewed integrity that a university demands. We attract the best minds from industry and academia, the people who want to make a difference in public policy. We impact our community through building capacity in business and government.
Educating future policy-makers, we are improving policy discourse through practical research and outreach.

Progress to date:
Pioneering policy research
We are leading knowledge-creation and changing the way researchers investigate.
The school actively engages our community. It bridges the gaps between business, government and academia by producing influential research. It provides energetic solutions to complex challenges for the benefit of our city, country and the world.
We strive to provide research and analyses for policy-makers and regulators that will assist in developing policies and practices across the globe.
Helping the disadvantaged in community
People with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can face employment challenges. New research into the employment of those with the disorder gives policy-makers options to consider that could improve job outcomes.
ADS is a complex disorder of brain development.
Dr. Jennifer Zwicker is Manager of the Neurodevelopmental Disability Policy Research program in health policy at The School of Public Policy. The paper she and colleagues released discusses the policy objective of enhancing these employment outcomes.
