Université du Québec – École Nationale d’Administration Publique

Born of a desire for an institution of higher learning in public administration in Québec, ENAP is the public administration university. Its mission is to contribute to the development of public administration both theoretically and in practice.

ENAP divides its mission into four broad areas: training, services to organizations, research, and services offered in partnership. In carrying out this mission, ENAP seeks to set the standard for public administration in Québec.

ENAP offers graduate study programs that are at once adapted to the needs of individuals and public organizations and designed to meet the objectives set out by universities and professional bodies. They may be taken part time or full time in Québec City or Montréal and in most cases at all three satellite campuses, in Gatineau, Trois-Rivières, and Saguenay.

ENAP is for both practicing professionals and young undergraduates looking to make a career as public administration analysts or advisors. There are courses to suit everyone. ENAP also offers 12 short 15 credit courses for those looking to take things one step at a time. There are also special training courses for federal public service managers.
