Action Canada is a Canadian fellowship that offers both senior leadership development and cross-country conferences to enhance an understanding of Canada and public policy choices for our future. Fellows are chosen from all sectors, including business, science, government, academia and the professions.
During the program, Fellows learn and interact with current leaders in government, business, NGOs and academia. They undertake public policy projects of significance to Canada. And they participate in six intensive three-to-four day working conferences (scheduled around weekends) in Vancouver, Ottawa and other locations across Canada. At the same time, Fellows continue with their regular employment or other endeavours in which they are engaged.
