To Whom It May Concern,

Re: Job ID 3A007-Policy03, Junior Policy Analyst, Ministry of Children and Youth

I have recently learned through an online posting of a 12 month contractual position as a Junior
Policy Analyst for the Feathers of Hope division of the ministry of Children and Youth Services
and am very interested in this position.

Having earned a diploma in Liberal Arts and now working towards completing my BA in
Political Science, I have acquired both a broad understanding historical social issues as well as a
more narrowed understanding of issues concerning Canadian Politics. My combined 5 years in
postsecondary education has allowed me to develop and enhance my research and writing
abilities, with the last 2 semesters having a particular focus on Public Administration and the
Policy Process. This, combined with my 7 years of work experience in the private sector has
given me the necessary experience and tools to perform well in this position.

During my BA at York University, I was afforded the opportunity to write extensively on issues
related to Political Science. This included many research essays on foreign policy, In which I
was able to effectively research the matters at hand and provide possible solutions to these
issues. An example of this is a research essay I have written for the POLS 2940 Intro to
International Politics course, in which I researched American attitudes towards a minority group
and the implications they had on US foreign policy. My focus was on coexistence and
cooperation between both foreign policy makers in the US as well as members of the minority
group by developing new and meaningful relationships.

The Feathers of Hope initiative is one I feel strongly about and one I believe addresses many of
the kinds of problems I researched in the essay mentioned above. The focus of the program on
First Nations youth is one that is much needed after a history of abuses against this particular
group. Whether that is reconciling with the issues of residential schools or more recent problems
such as alcoholism, First Nations youth indeed face challenges not faced by their non-First
Nations counterparts in Ontario today. The problems Feathers of Hope has addressed are crucial
in understanding the lived experience of First Nations Youth, problems like alcoholism, violence
and rising rates of suicide among youth. However these problems do not occur in a vacuum and
are ongoing issues that must be actively researched in order to come up with solutions in the
community and on the policy side on how to solve them.
As a Junior Analyst for Feather of Hope, I would be able to focus my research on the kinds of
issues mentioned above. Engaging even further with community members and youth to
determine whether or not the programs in place have been effective and where improvement is
needed. The challenges faced by First Nations youth are incredible and I look forward with
working with and motivating a team who takes those challenges as seriously as myself. Having
myself worked with youth in a hospitals, particularly those at risk of suicide and those dealing
with mental health concerns, I believe I would be the ideal candidate for this position. My ability
to research and analyze new and complex issues as well as my practical ability to engage with
youth would offer a fantastic opportunity for both myself and the Feathers of Hope program to
grow and develop a tremendous partnership.

I look forward to an opportunity to discuss my suitability for this position through a personal
interview. Having presented here a brief overview of what I am confident is a strong potential for
a great partnership between myself and the Feathers of Hope division of the Ministry of Children
and Youth Services. You can reach me during daytime and evening hours at 647.877.967 or via
email at Thank you for considering my application and I wish you all
the best in filling this significant and rewarding position.

Sincerely yours,

Muneeb Javaid
