Policy Challenge

The Policy Challenge is an education program run by AGE-WELL and the AGE-WELL National Innovation Hub – APPTA. This education program is a unique opportunity for AGE-WELL trainees to work closely with policy experts and learn first-hand how research ideas become policy options for implementation at a provincial, territorial, or national level.

Each year policy priority questions are identified by government stakeholders from across Canadian jurisdictions. Applicants choose a policy priority and continue to spend the duration of the program working closely with APPTA’s team and the larger government stakeholder network for the development of their own policy report. Participants acquire policy writing skills, invaluable networking opportunities as well as a relevant, impactful knowledge product to add to their portfolio upon program completion.
