Building Capacity with the Fellowship Program

The Fellowship program provides Impact Canada with a mechanism to extend its supports to organizations in the face of increasing demand of specialized skills. The Fellowship program recruits external talent with expertise in four discrete disciplines – behavioural science, impact measurement, innovative finance, and challenges. Fellows remain Privy Council Office employees throughout their placements in host organizations, ensuring a valuable connection to Impact Canada. Placements typically range from 12-24 months, depending on individual project scope. The Challenge Prize stream is currently being tested in two federal departments.
