This activity guide will give you the opportunity to act as a student who has received three internships: one in your local municipal office, one in a provincial minister’s office and one in the office of your federal member of Parliament. In these roles, you will deal with several issues and tasks related to policy-making and policy analysis, including researching a new skate park, creating a budget for it and holding public consultations; analyzing a policy and creating a brief for a provincial minister; and helping a group prepare a petition at the federal level.
