Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee
CJPAC Fellowship Program

The nationally renowned CJPAC Fellowship Program is Canada’s premier political training program.

Each year, the Fellowship Program trains 45 of the top pro-Israel, politically-engaged university students from across Canada to become the next generation of political leaders. It provides the opportunity for Fellows to enhance their understanding of all levels of government in Canada, build their networks and develop skills which will help them in their post-graduate careers.

This year the program will once again include a mandatory political conference in Ottawa in November where Fellows will meet with Members of Parliament, senior political strategists and receive advanced campaign training.

CJPAC welcomes applicants from Jewish and non-Jewish communities, all political parties and every region of Canada.

All Fellows must be pro-Israel and demonstrate a strong interest and some experience in Canadian politics.
