This event is for BSIA, UW and Laurier students.
The Policy Analyst Recruitment and Development Program (PARDP) is Natural Resources Canada’s signature accelerated development program for Master’s and Ph.D. graduates. Over the course of this program participants learn how to translate their already robust academic and external professional credentials into NRCan’s specific science & policy context. In this session, David Caughey, environmental policy analyst and BSIA graduate of the MAGG program, will walk you through the program and application process, and answer any questions relating to both PARDP or post-BSIA life with federal government.
