The Gosbee Fellowship was established to develop new talent and perspectives for public policy leadership in Canada.
It is named after our late co-founder, George Gosbee. Ten years ago, George, who launched two Canadian investment banks, AltaCorp and Tristone Capital, took a chance on an unusual idea that was admittedly outside the orbit of his typical investments. He believed that involving more people in politics — and specifically in policy development — would help to strengthen the country he loved. To commemorate his legacy of public policy leadership in Canada, we renamed our internship program in his honour. Gosbee Fellows are people who we predict will make important and inclusive contributions to public policy in Canada, and through this program, we invest in their potential.
Each year, we select three Fellows who join our Toronto team for 12-16 weeks, full-time. Gosbee Fellows have the opportunity to work on a range of policy projects, acquiring new skills and sensibilities, while also having the opportunity to pursue professional interests with the support of the MASS team.
