Allison brings over 17 years of program, policy and human resources experience to this role. She has worked in both the federal and provincial governments in strategic policy and program coordination, including three years with the BC Public Service Agency Indigenous Youth Internship Program (IYIP) where she was responsible for intern support and development of training opportunities.
