Career Track 6: Policy

A day in the life video

Introduction: The Policy Career Track will explore energy careers that exist within municipal, provincial, territorial and federal governments focused on policy development, analysis and implementation. Participants will learn about these various levels of government and how energy policy is approached by each. 

Job profiles:

  • Code Official
  • Policy Analyst
  • Community and Urban Planner

Government policies and programs, including electricity procurement mechanisms, and funding arrangements which reduce project development risk continue to be central to Indigenous clean energy action, and the role of provinces and territories is critical. There are opportunities, for example, to promote large scale clean energy procurement (e.g. Alberta and Saskatchewan), or to kick-start off-grid diesel replacement projects (Yukon).
