Apply to the Government of PEI Case Team Program

The provincial government has re-launched a Case Team Program to hire post-secondary students to address current organizational issues brought forward by PEI government departments and agencies, private businesses and non-profit organizations. 

Organizations are invited to apply for problem-solving assistance with issues involving, but not limited to, marketing, human resources, operations, or strategy. Students may apply to be a Case Team Member (20 positions), Case Team Coordinator (1 position), or both positions. While in the program they will work on case teams to offer evidence-based solutions to clients. For more information about these two positions please click the link below,

Case Team Member

Case Team Coordinator

How will the Case Team Program work?

Multi-disciplinary case teams, each comprised of five post-secondary students, will spend two weeks working with an identified client to analyze the organization and its issue or concern, research industry trends and best practices, and develop evidence-based solutions. At the end of the two-week period, the team will present its findings and recommendations to their client in a professional report and oral presentation. 

Organizations are required to:

  • Be available to meet with case teams regularly during the two-week period;
  • Have professional staff who can provide guidance and feedback; and
  • Commit to providing an evaluation after the case team’s final presentation. 

Primarily, students will work virtually but are required to meet as a group for at least one hour per day. A Case Team Coordinator will be available to provide advice and guidance to the teams. Students will gain valuable experience with presentation and communication, teamwork and collaboration, critical thinking, and problem-solving. In addition, they will participate in professional development activities throughout the summer that further their educational and career goals. 

When will the program start?

The program will begin June 2021.
