Experience North - Summer 2024

Every summer Northern Policy Institute makes available up to ten four-month placements across Northern Ontario. Usually housed with a partner organization in one of Ontario’s Central, Western or Northern Regions, the placements learn first-hand about the cut and thrust of public policy debate and the realities of running a not-for-profit. Together we build human capital and get lived experience in the North. For more information, visit our Experience North page.

These positions are ideal for those seeking to build firsthand experience about real world policy research, marketing, communication, or the operation of federally registered charities. How this education work is done, how it is crafted, and to whom and how it is communicated. The added benefit is a chance to expand your knowledge and understanding of Northern Ontario.

Candidates are asked to provide a one paragraph statement as to why they have applied for the position in this specific community. Applications that do not include this information may not be considered.
