Erika worked as a Policy Analyst for the Federal Economic Development Agency of Southern Ontario (FedDev). The Program Policy Team (PPT) was central in leading the agency-wide development of policy items and related tools. The trajectory of her work-term shifted with the onset of COVID, and her responsibilities changed to more directly support the development and implementation of the Regional Relief and Recovery Fund (RRRF). Some of Erika’s weekly tasks consisted of drafting issue notes/policy briefs, preparing draft internal and external correspondence and creating a cross-agency “ RRRF Lesson’s Learned” document to guide future policy creation.
