VANCOUVER, 7 December 2010 – Canada’s foremost leadership program, Action Canada, is seeking nominations of promising young Canadians in their early career years to participate in our 2011/2012 national fellowship program.
Action Canada’s goal is to enhance Fellows’ leadership skills and their understanding of Canada and its policy choices, and build an exceptional network of leaders for our time.
Up to 20 nominees from across the country will be selected to participate in this 11-month program focused on leadership development. Fellows will attend six intensive, four to five-day working conferences around the country, and work together on public policy projects of significance to Canada. They’ll also join the vibrant Action Canada Network of Fellows.
This unique experience requires a substantial time commitment and Fellows must undertake the program in addition to their regular employment or other endeavours in which they are engaged.
The 2011/2012 theme is Advancing Canada’s national interests in economic and business policy.
A national organization based in Vancouver, B.C., Action Canada is a partnership between the private sector and the federal government that is committed to building leadership for Canada’s future.
