Our StoryAbout APEX
The Association of Professional Executives of the Public Service of Canada (APEX), an independent not-for-profit organization, was established in 1984, by Federal Public Service executives to provide services and organize activities for their own community.
As a national professional association, APEX is acknowledged as the active voice for over 7,400 federal executives, engaging executives across departments at various stages of their career – Directors, Directors General, Assistant Deputy Ministers, and Deputy Ministers – from across Canada and abroad. Together, these leaders oversee the work of over 300,000 public servants.
Throughout its history, APEX has supported executives through management excellence, professional development and networking, providing services and sharing knowledge. Today, APEX supports executives through the delivery of advocacy, research, advisory services and learning events. The wide range of current APEX activities and initiatives are designed to provide executives with opportunities to develop a strong community of practice, promote their physical and mental well-being, and support excellence in leadership.
