Name of creator
The Institute of Public Policy Analysis (IPPA) was a proposed institute that Simon Fraser University intended to establish as a forum bringing together individuals from the university, community and government sectors for the examination of Canadian public policy at both federal and provincial levels. The project was never realized.
Planning began in 1972 with the goal of commencing operations in September 1974. By early 1973 both Senate and the Board of Governors had approved the establishment of the Institute, and around March of that year the university appointed John Hogarth from the Faculty of Law at York University as the first Director. The Institute was to house both continuing staff funded by SFU as well as visiting fellows and researchers funded by external grants. Each academic year the Institute would focus on a specific problem or theme in public policy, offering symposia, research workshops, seminars and public lectures.
By early 1974 it had become apparent that the Institute would be unable to obtain sufficient external funding to begin its operations in the fall. Director Hogarth resigned effective March 31, 1974 and the university dissolved the Institute shortly afterwards.
