Application period for our 2017 Summer Placement Program is now closed.

imageEvery summer Northern Policy Institute offers up to ten four-month placements across Northern Ontario. Housed in one of Northern Policy Institute's three permanent offices or with a partner organization, the summer students learn first-hand about the cut and thrust of public policy debate.
