What is involved in volunteering for CSPC?
Volunteers will contribute 3-5 hours per week, with the majority of communications taking place via email and conference calls. Therefore, you can be anywhere in Canada. If you have an interest in Canadian science, technology, and innovation policy, we could use your help in one of our volunteer committees.
What are the CSPC volunteer committees?
*Note: Both Science Meets Parliament and program development committees require relevant knowledge and experience in the science and innovation policy sector and allow for a limited number of volunteers from each sector (academia, government, the private sector, and non-profit sector).
