Appointment to the Privy Council Office

by kevinmil

On June 15th, 2020 I started as Special Advisor (Economic Recovery) to the Clerk of the Privy Council. I look forward to the challenge of helping in the effort to spur a vigorous and inclusive economic recovery.

This position is with the Privy Council Office, arranged through an Interchange Agreement between the Government of Canada and UBC.

The Privy Council Office mandate is to “[provide] professional non-partisan advice to the Prime Minister, portfolio ministers, Cabinet and Cabinet committees on matters of national and international importance.”

I will return to UBC full-time on January 1, 2021.

[UPDATE: We have renewed the Interchange Agreement to the end of April, 2021. I look forward to returning full time to UBC in May.]

I will not be available for media comment during this time period.

My Curriculum Vita is available here.
