The Action Canada Fellowship is a 10-month public policy leadership program that aims to enhance young leaders’ understanding of the country and public policy choices for the future.
The Public Policy Forum and Action Canada have joined forces to expand Canada’s top accelerator of new leaders.
Action Canada is visiting the Quebec City region for a study tour as part of the Fellowship. In March each year, Action Canada Fellows release their final reports and discuss their findings at a national conference. Each cohort of Fellows examines a different policy topic. For example, in 2017/2018, they looked at the transition to a low-carbon future. Last year, it is the future of food. This year, it is the future of work.
