Lauren Hunter makes the move to Ontario politics

Lauren HunterThe Rideau Institute wishes to announce that our Director of Operations, Lauren Hunter, has accepted a new political posting in provincial politics.

Lauren Hunter arrived at the Rideau Institute as a summer student in 2008, and after graduating from Carleton University’s Arthur Kroeger College of Public Affairs quickly rose to the position of Director of Operations in 2011.

During her tenure she contributed to the Rideau Institute’s success as a well-known public policy organization, and worked closely with its clients which comprise Canada’s leading non-profit organizations and trade unions.

“‘I am very happy that Lauren is able to pursue her dream of working in politics,” said Rideau Institute President Steven Staples. “We are grateful for the tremendous contribution she has made to our organization.”

Ms. Hunter will be starting a position in the Ottawa office of Ontario Member of Provincial Parliament Yasir Naqvi in January 2012. Her successor will be announced early in the new year.
