École nationale d’administration publique

The École nationale d’administration publique (ENAP meaning National School of Public Administration) is a graduate school in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. It was established in 1969 by the Quebec provincial government as a means of encouraging people to study professional public administration during a period when a number of social and structural changes were taking place within the province. The enabling legislation is An Act respecting educational institutions at the university level.

The school is unique in that it is partly a pragmatic learning environment geared to educating Quebecers for positions within the public administration and partly a traditional university. ENAP has five campuses throughout Quebec, with two major campuses in Quebec City and Montreal, and three campuses in Gatineau, Saguenay, and Trois-Rivières.


ENAP offers a variety of programs:

  • Specialized Graduate Diplomas in Public administration, International administration and Regional administration.
  • Master of Public Administration for Analysts in International administration, Organizational analysis and development, Program evaluation and Human resource management.
  • Master of Urban Management Analysis for Analysts
  • Master of Public Administration for Managers in Public management, International management and Municipal management
