KPMG’s Public Sector Practice: From Concept to Outcome  

Your Issues Matter to Us

The public sector plays a significant role in our country by providing services and infrastructure that touch the lives of all Canadians. The challenge today is to deliver these services while dealing with major concerns, such as deficits, a reduction in discretionary spending, health care reform, aging infrastructure, tax harmonization, and structural deficits that erode the sector’s ability to invest in itself and in public services.
