Lynn Betzner
Serving the public has been part of Lynn Betzner's life for as long as she can remember. Growing up, she was expected to help out at her father's hardware store in Grimsby, located between Lake Ontario and the Niagara Escarpment. She certainly learned a lot from that experience and one valuable lesson was putting people first - a focus she's kept for her 20-plus-year career with the Ontario Public Service. She is now Deputy Minister and Associate Secretary of the Cabinet, at the centre of a communications portfolio that spans 26 departments. Her job: advising government on all communications fronts. Her passion: working to develop a more integrated approach to communicating on topics ranging from education to the environment. After launching her career in the private sector, she quickly jumped to public service, her true calling. Following a stint with the Environmental Assessment Board, she settled in at the Ministry of Transportation. It was here - amid a range of complex challenges - where she decided to pursue a M.A. in Political Science. She wanted to learn more about effecting change. The depth and breadth of the faculty at U of T drew her to the school. She chose courses focused on implementing ideas exchanged around the seminar table. Remarkably, that perspective has taken Betzner a long way - and yet not far from home.
