‘Help Shape the Future of APEX’

(November 2023)

APEX’s Research Partner

The Association of Professional Executives of the Public Service of Canada (APEX) has retained Nanos Research, one of North America’s premier research and strategy organizations ( to complete a comprehensive marketing survey with the public service executive community.

APEX Mission

The APEX Mission Statement is as follows:

We will be a vibrant national organization that inspires executive excellence in leadership through strategic advocacy, research, professional development, and advisory services. We will be the preeminent voice for the executive community of the Public Service of Canada.

About the Survey

The survey will be asking all federal executives questions about their perspectives of APEX within the APEX mandate.

All Public Service executives will be invited to complete the survey, whether they are APEX members or not.

There are four broad theme areas that the survey will cover – executives’ perceptions of APEX, feedback on how APEX is meeting current executive needs, how APEX can assist executives with their challenges and, what executives value as important.

The survey will be conducted on-line from November 10, 2023 to January 8, 2024.

We estimate that completion of the survey will take 15 minutes.

How the information will be used?

APEX is proud of the organization’s efforts over the years, to actively listen to executives and have this feedback drive change in its direction and work. To provide a few examples:

  • We have been leading research in matters of interest to executives, most notably The Executive Work & Health Study,
  • Expanding professional development and learning activities,
  • Increasing the offering of Advisory services,
  • Advocating on compensation and terms and conditions of employment, and
  • Providing additional Affinity benefits.

The insights gained from the marketing research will guide APEX actions in delivering more effective services and experiences to executives and their broader community. Insights gathered will significantly shape APEX’s new 5-year Strategic Plan to be developed in 2024.

We care about executive views – Help us, Get it Right!
