The Advocacy Research Intern is part of a team that provides expertise and assistance for MCC Canada’s advocacy efforts. This position is based in the Ottawa Office, which serves as a conduit of information and bridge for relationships between the federal government of Canada and MCC Canada’s diverse constituency. It witnesses to government on issues of peace, justice and human dignity that arise out of MCC’s ministry at home and around the world. The Ottawa Office works with a number of coalitions while trying to bring a unique, Anabaptist perspective to the work of political engagement.

This unpaid position is supervised by one Ottawa Office staff person but requires close and ongoing collaboration with other members of the Ottawa Office team. The MCC Ottawa Office will make a modest contribution towards the intern's transportation expenses.
