Lakehead University engineering student Joshua Jansen has been selected in a highly-competitive contest to be a delegate at the Canadian Council for Public Private Partnerships (CCPPP)’s Annual Conference as part of the 2023 Next Generation Talent Student Program.
Jansen, who is a third-year Civil Engineering student in Lakehead’s Faculty of Engineering, is one of just 12 talented post-secondary students from across Canada selected to take part in the CCPPP Annual Conference taking place on November 13 and 14 in Toronto.
“Being chosen as a next generation talent has been one of the greatest honours of my life and I am truly humbled,” Jansen said.
“I have always strived to continuously learn and improve myself, and this exceptional opportunity will enable me to understand much more about Canada’s infrastructure sector, explore career options available in this field, and build my professional network.”
Next Generation Talent student delegates participate in a pre-conference orientation session and attend keynote speeches and provocative panel discussions on challenges and opportunities in the field of P3s from notable leaders.
“This is a terrific accomplishment for Joshua and we are thrilled to see him chosen as a next generation talent in what is a very prestigious, nationwide selection process. He will be an outstanding delegate, and we are all very proud to see him representing Lakehead University at this conference,” said Professor Janusz Kozinski, Dean of Engineering at Lakehead University.
