Become a TAP Canadian Expert and share your expertise with the world!
The TAP Project is looking for leaders from a diversity of sectors, backgrounds, gender, cultural identities and regions across Canada to share their expertise with partner countries around the world.
Canadian Experts work with national entities in countries eligible for Canada’s official development assistance. The TAP project team of development professionals support these experts throughout their assignment with logistics, training and work planning.
A key component of TAP is awareness and increasing engagement of Canadians as partners and global citizens in support of Canada’s international assistance efforts. TAP experts will share their placement experiences with Canadians through extensive public engagement opportunities.
