The Action Canada Fellowship is accepting applications
The application period for the 2019/2020 Action Canada Fellowship is now open. Interested individuals have until March 15 at 5 p.m. PST to apply. All the details can be found on Action Canada’s website.
This 10-month public policy leadership program aims to enhance young leaders’ understanding of the country and public policy choices for the future. It brings together diverse Canadians from across the country to engage in timely, topical and strategic policy issues affecting Canada. Each year, approximately 16 Fellows enhance their leadership skills, forge lifelong connections with people and communities across the country, and promote greater civic engagement among all Canadians.
The Public Policy Forum and Action Canada have joined forces to expand Canada’s top incubator of new leaders.
Over a period of 10 months (between June and March), the Fellows, Mentors and Advisory Council members head on four study tours, each in a different region of Canada. In March, Action Canada Fellows release their final reports and discuss their findings at a national conference. Each cohort has a different theme that becomes the subject matter focus and the topic which Task Force reports examine. For example, in 2017/2018 they examined the transition to a low-carbon future. This year, it is the future of food. The theme for 2019/2020 will be announced after the next cohort has been selected.
