Striving for Excellence the Goal, Says Minister Clement During National Public Service Week

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 9, 2013) - The Honourable Tony Clement, President of the Treasury Board and Minister responsible for FedNor, today underscored the pivotal role the public service plays in delivering timely, effective service to Canadians as part of National Public Service Week, which takes place June 9 to 15, 2013.

"Canadians depend on a professional, high-performing, 21st century public service," said Minister Clement. "As we move forward with the important task of modernizing the Public Service of Canada, I am confident that public servants will make the most of their skills and creativity."

For more than 20 years, National Public Service Week has been an opportunity to recognize the achievements and hard work of Canada's federal public service employees. The theme of this year's celebration is "Proudly Serving Canadians."

"The federal public service delivers a wide range of programs and services to support Canadians," said Minister Clement. "It is a workforce like no other in the country and it contributes to our success domestically and abroad. The public service must continue to strive for excellence in everything it does. Canadians deserve no less."

"Please join with me in wishing the Public Service of Canada a happy National Public Service Week."
