Ambrose joins Canadian Global Affairs Institute

Everyone knew that former interim Conservative Party leader Rona Ambrose was heading to the Wilson Center in Washington, D.C. as a global fellow for its Canada Institute, but the former politician will be partaking in a couple of other endeavours as well.

Ms. Ambrose joined the Canadian Global Affairs Institute’s advisory council July 19 “to assist in the development and production of independent, rigorous policy analysis as well as transparent governance practices,” a press release said.

Ms. Ambrose isn’t the only politico on the advisory council though: others include Ian Brodie, chief of staff to former prime minister Stephen Harper from 2006 to 2008, Jean Charest, former Progressive Conservative deputy prime minister and Liberal premier of Quebec, Dan Hays, former president of the Liberal Party and Senator, and John Manley, president and CEO of the Business Council of Canada. 

“If you look at Rona’s [political] portfolio over time she really hits the high points of what [CGAI] is trying to do,” including involvement in defence procurement and a defence policy review, said Kelly Ogle, president of the CGAI.

Ms. Ambrose dealt with military procurement as a former public works minister.

On another note, Ms. Ambrose also joined the board of directors of power company TransAlta on July 13.
