Gregory P. Marchildon, CM, PhD, CAHS, born on March 11, 1956, is a former senior public servant, author, and academic. He has served in notable positions, including Deputy Minister of Saskatchewan under Premier Roy Romanow[1] and Executive Director for the Commission on the Future of Health Care in Canada, commonly referred to as the Romanow Commission.[1]

Marchildon began his academic journey in the Fransaskois community of Zenon Park, Saskatchewan. He attended the Universities of Regina and Saskatchewan, where he studied history, economics, and law. He completed his Ph.D. in economic history at the London School of Economics and Political Science, where he also served as a term lecturer. From 1989 to 1994, he was an assistant professor at Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies in Washington, DC, specializing in economic history and Canadian studies.

In 1994, Marchildon returned to Canada to serve as Deputy Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs within the Government of Saskatchewan[2]. In 1997, he became Cabinet Secretary and Deputy Minister to Premier Roy Romanow, holding these positions for nearly four years[1]. In 2001, he became the Executive Director of the Commission on the Future of Health Care in Canada[3], where he was the lead drafter of the Commission's influential 2002 report, "Building on Values."[4]

In 2003, Marchildon rejoined academia as the Canada Research Chair in Public Policy and Economic History at the University of Regina. He played a significant role in establishing the Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy, a collaboration between the University of Regina and the University of Saskatchewan. In 2015, he transitioned to the University of Toronto as the Ontario Research Chair in Health Policy and System Design. He was awarded the title of Professor Emeritus in 2022[5][6].

Marchildon is recognized for his contributions to Canadian history and public policy. His first publication, "Profits and Politics: Beaverbrook and the Gilded Age of Canadian Finance," examines the early financial activities of Lord Beaverbrook[7]. In the early 2000s, he shifted his focus to contemporary public policy, particularly comparative health policy. He edited three editions of "Health Systems in Transition: Canada," published by the World Health Organization and the University of Toronto Press.[8]

In 2017, Marchildon founded the North American Observatory on Health Systems and Policies (NAO)[9], a research center focused on comparative health research in Canada, the United States, and Mexico. The NAO collaborates with the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies, hosted by the World Health Organization’s Regional Office for Europe.

Marchildon has received several prestigious awards, including the Lieutenant-Governor’s Gold Medal in 2006[10] for his contributions to public policy in Saskatchewan. In 2021, he was appointed to the Order of Canada in recognition of his significant advancements in social and health policy within Canada.[11]
