Employees, do you want to:

This unique program makes it easy for indeterminate and term employees to gain experience in different policy functions across the public service and for managers to benefit from multi-disciplinary teams.

XFN participants will:

• Work in 2-3 different policy functions in diverse departments/agencies over 18 months;

• Hone policy skills and new ways of thinking; and,

• Receive individualized support from the program’s Talent Manager to achieve their learning goals.

XFN managers will receive:

• Pre-screened high potential policy practitioners with diverse multi-disciplinary skills;

• Individualized support from the Talent Manager to enable program participant learning.

XFN is offered and enabled by the Policy Community Partnership Office and the Canada School of Public Service.
