Apply to the PEI Government Case Team Program

The provincial government has 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 work on a case team to offer evidence-based solutions to clients.  

Online applications are now closed.

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 their 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, team work 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 be begin on June 08, 2020.
