Northern Policy Institute

Northern Policy Institute (NPI) is seeking a full-time Policy Analyst for a 2-year contract in Kirkland Lake,
Ontario. This position is ideal for those seeking a first position post-graduation or looking to bring their
knowledge and experience to Northern Ontario.

The Policy Analyst will be responsible for exploring the challenges of providing affordable rural and
remote housing for families, middle income earners, and first-time home buyers. The work will explore
the tools and measures available to assess the level of housing scarcity in a community and identify
local factors that could be addressed to reduce that scarcity. It will also include developing and
applying metrics to assess the effectiveness of interventions to increase housing supply.

Solid analytical and writing skills are a must. In addition to descriptive statistics, the placements will be
expected to assess and explore potential policy implications and apply comparative evidence to
support proposed policy changes, solutions, or directions. University or college students (with some
practical experience) are preferred. Bilingualism would be an advantage. Multilingualism, or a special
knowledge of Northern Ontario, would also be assets.

Candidates are asked to provide a one-paragraph statement as to why they applied for the position in
this specific community. Applications that do not include this information may not be considered.
