Action Canada Fellowships

The Action Canada Fellowship is a unique opportunity to discover Canada, upgrade your understanding of public policy processes, refine your leadership skills and build a community of other dedicated leaders. Each year, we select Fellows from a wide variety of backgrounds—both personal and professional—who want to have a significant impact on how public policy is made in their communities and across Canada.

Eligibility: Candidates must be Canadian citizens or permanent residents to be considered for selection. There is no age limit for applicants interested in the Fellowship.

Note: While the commitment to participate in the Action Canada Fellowship is substantial (approximately seven to eight weeks in total over the 10-month Fellowship), participation in this program can be undertaken in conjunction with the applicant’s regular work or studies with their employer’s or educational institution’s support.

Value: Travel and accommodation costs for all components of the program are covered by the program. Meals are also provided as part of each study tour. Certain costs may be covered for virtual programming.
