Working in close partnership with l’École nationale d’administration publique (l’ÉNAP), the goal of this three-year project is to encourage, support and prepare post-secondary students from our institutions to explore careers in Quebec’s public service. Project activities include research and knowledge mobilization, curriculum development, awareness campaigns to demystify the public service, and development of an internship program. These activities will give students an opportunity to become more familiar with the Quebec Public Service and to develop possible interests in a career in this sector.
Funding for this project is provided by the Secrétariat aux relations avec les Québécois d’expression anglaise (SRQEA)’s Employability Strategy.
NEW! Graduate-level Microprogram in Public Administration
The Consortium has partnered with the École nationale d’administration publique (l’ÉNAP) to develop a new, part-time graduate-level microprogram in public administration tailored to English-speaking university graduates in Quebec.
The microprogram will launch in September 2024. Delivered in French with additional language support at l’ÉNAP’s Montreal campus, the target audience is recent graduates from our three university members (Bishop’s, Concordia, and McGill) who hold, at a minimum, a bachelor’s degree and have an interest in a career in Quebec’s public service.
The nine credit microprogram will adapt three core courses already offered at l’ÉNAP (Principes et enjeux de l’administration publique, Management des organisations publiques et Droit de l’administration publique) to include content, examples and case studies that reflect the challenges and opportunities facing English-speakers who wish to explore a career in Quebec’s Public Service.
This collaboration between the Consortium and l’ÉNAP is intended to help address the long-standing under-representation of Quebec’s English-speaking community in Quebec’s Public Service, and to build rewarding career pathways for our graduates in Quebec.
