Living much of his life in Ottawa, Bruce also has some background in the federal public service, significantly, including a stint as a carpet tester for the Department of Public Works.

Bruce takes the helm in OIRP as Carleton enters into a more challenging environment for universities in the province – both financial and demographic pressures will make it more difficult for Carleton to continue to fulfill its integrated mission of learning and advancing knowledge. Given this environment, he intends to continue OIRP’s goal of promoting planning and evidence based decision making and to continue with building on the strong foundation of technical and human resources that already exists in the office.
