Steven Caron is completing his Master of Arts (MA) in Public and International Affairs at the University of Ottawa. His major research paper focuses on the disparity between Indigenous and non-Indigenous health outcomes and Indigenous health policy.
Over the last four years, Steven has worked as a Legislative Assistant to a Member of Parliament and as a Ministerial advisor. Steven’s career began with a social development internship award from Global Affairs Canada, where he spent time living and working in Honduras on government-funded projects. This opportunity led him to work for a US-based organization where he spent time living and working in New Jersey and Washington, DC, on non-profit global initiatives funded by the Atlas Corps fellowship. Recognized for his commitment to international and regional development projects in Latin America, Steven joined NGO Limitless Horizons IXIL as an International Coordinator in rural Guatemala. There he managed budgeting and accounting, a sustainable tourism platform and assisted local staff in implementing country-specific development programs.
Steven is excited to join NAADSN as a graduate fellow, where he will apply his background to further defence research in the Arctic and northern context.
