Since 2003, Action Canada has organized a national fellowship program that emphasizes leadership development and citizenship engagement. It brings together diverse Canadians from across the country to engage in timely, topical and strategic policy issues affecting our country.
About the Program

The Action Canada Fellowship is Canada’s top accelerator of policy leaders that aims to enhance emerging leaders’ understanding of the country and public policy choices for the future.

Approximately 16 Fellows per year enhance their leadership skills, forge lifelong connections with people and communities across the country and promote greater civic engagement among all Canadians. Each cohort of Fellows examines a different policy topic which becomes the focus of their task force reports.

Learn more about the Fellowship and connect with the impressive alumni network by visiting the Action Canada website.
