The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives is on our Wall of Fame for offering a paid four month internship in their Ottawa office.
The Andrew Jackson Progressive Economics Internship pays $4,600 for the fall semester (September – December) for approximately 256 hours. The Intern will:
- Research and review relevant academic and policy literature concerning income inequality in Canada;
- Organize meetings with various AFB writers and contributors;
- Review individual AFB chapters and the macro-economic framework;
- Assist with other data analysis and report writing, as required. Some of this will be generic research assistance to David Macdonald.
We also received a very positive endorsement from Hadrian Mertins-Kirkwood, who held the internship in 2014 and is now a full-time researcher at the CCPA:
The CCPA is at the centre of the progressive policy community in Canada, and this internship is an incredible opportunity to develop the networks and practical skills to succeed in the non-profit sector. The organization’s national office in Ottawa provides a dynamic and supportive environment for young researchers to make their mark on a wide variety of pressing national policy issues.
