More students invited to work with government, businesses to address challenges

The Provincial Case Team Program is hiring 10 post-secondary students for the winter to work with the provincial government, businesses and non-profit organizations to help address challenges they are currently facing.

The program, launched last spring, hires post-secondary students from a variety of disciplines to help solve problems and tackle issues. Organizations can take advantage of the fresh perspectives, knowledge and talent the students will bring. Both students and organizations interested in being part of the Case Team Program can apply at Apply to the PEI Government Case Team Program until November 23.  

“I always say some of the best ideas never get heard. What’s great about this program is it gives post-secondary students the opportunity to work directly with clients to deliver their innovative ideas and solutions.”

-  Economic Growth, Tourism and Culture Minister Matthew MacKay

Students will work with their client to analyze and research the issues of concern and develop best practices and evidence-based solutions to the problem. They will present their findings to their clients in a professional report and oral presentation.

The remote-based student winter program will be part-time and run for thirteen weeks from January until April 2021.
