Joseph Galimberti remembered for devotion to excellence in public service

SAINT-SAUVEUR, QUE. – Senior managers from all levels ofgovernment and all regions of Canada paused Sunday at the LacCarling Congress to hear a tribute to Joseph Galimberti, one ofCanada’s most respected public-sector leaders for threedecades.

Galimberti, who built the Institute of Public Administration ofCanada (IPAC) into an exemplary organization dedicated toexcellence in public service, died suddenly April 9 at the age of65.

“There was never a better person or a better public-sectorleader than Joe Galimberti,” Brian Marson, special advisor,research and analysis, with the CIO Branch of the federal TreasuryBoard Secretariat, and a former IPAC national president, told the225 delegates gathered on the first day of the 10th LacCarling Congress on government transformation, held atSaint-Sauveur, Quebec.

IPAC is a partner in the Lac Carling event, at Galimberti’sinitiative, and is known for its educational events, research,publications, awards and assistance to other governments around theworld, all in pursuit of establishing and maintaining the higheststandards of public administration. IPAC’s achievements in Canadaand internationally were led and inspired by Galimberti in his 31years as executive director.

Marsen noted that Galimberti and IPAC helped incubate otherorganizations over the years, including the CommonwealthAssociation of Public Administration and Management and theInstitute for Citizen Centred Service. He was never ambitious forhimself, only for IPAC and the profession it represents, and wasself-effacing, modest and respectful and caring of others.

Marsen said: “Today, our prayers go out to his wife Carol and tohis family. Our memories of Joe will be of a wonderful man whotouched our lives, and who showed us both how to live and how tolead.”
