Event Description:
In Fall 2019, The Government of Canada will welcome applications for the Recruitment of Policy Leaders (RPL) program. 

Each year the Recruitment of Policy Leaders program seeks talented and accomplished professionals, academics, scientists and thinkers. The program offers them a unique opportunity to launch directly into stimulating and diverse careers in the federal public service.The program is looking for candidates with a strong record of academic excellence, an interest in public policy and experience that demonstrates leadership and commitment. Non-Canadians living in Canada can apply to RPL but preference will be given to veterans and Canadian citizens (in that order) who meet the job requirements.

All candidates must hold (or be nearing completion) a Master's, Doctoral or a law degree, complemented by an undergraduate degree in any discipline.

Apply online from October 23 - Nov 6 for the RPL Program at:
