Student Program

The Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships will be awarding 12 talented post-secondary students from across Canada the opportunity to attend its 21st Annual National Conference on Public-Private Partnerships. The experience is valued at approximately $3,000 in waived fees, travel and accommodation costs, but is priceless in terms of the learning, exposure and networking.

The selected 12 students will have direct access to their P3-sector sponsor at a special sponsor-student breakfast, undertake interview-based research with conference delegates, participate in a pre-conference orientation session as well as attend stimulating keynote speeches and panel discussions.

Graduate students and upper-year undergraduate college and university students from across Canada who are studying in a relevant field (e.g. finance, engineering, business, law, public administration/policy, economics, planning and construction management) are eligible to apply.


The 2013 application process is now closed. Our selection committee will be giving careful consideration to those that applied and making decisions in the coming weeks. Be sure to check back next September for those students interested in attending P3 2014.
