Finance & Budget Officer

Thunder Bay – 12-month placement
Northern Policy Institute is seeking a full-time Finance & Budget Officer for a 1-year internship in Thunder Bay. While accounting and finance skills are paramount, some capacity in office management or business administration would be of value. This position is ideal for those seeking a first position post-graduation or looking to bring their knowledge and experience to Northern Ontario.



icon-group Experience North

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, building human capital and experience in the North. In 2020, in response to the outbreak of COVID-19, Experience North Summer Placements worked remotely from home. This may occur again in 2021, depending on the advice and direction of provincial and regional health authorities at that time. For more information, visit our Experience North page
