Mark Johnson

Team Leader, Issues Management, Environment and Climate Change Canada


Mark Johnson grew up in southern Ontario and moved to Ottawa in 2005. He did his undergrad in political science at the University of Waterloo and a Master of Arts in Communication at the University of Ottawa before enrolling in the MPM program in the fall of 2014. During his university studies, he volunteered on numerous election campaigns and he eventually joined the federal public service in 2007. He enjoys volunteering, travelling and reading.

“Learning more about how the political staff think and the environment in which they operate was highly beneficial to me professionally. After I completed MPM, my senior management, knowing the value of the MPM program, recommended that I apply my skills through a move into a senior issues management role, working on a daily basis with our Minister’s Office. The knowledge and experiences I took away from MPM are invaluable and I cannot recommend this program enough.” – Mark Johnson
