500 science and technology internship opportunities for young Canadians

Natural Resources Canada has collaborated with various third-party delivery organizations to provide 500 science and technology internship opportunities to young Canadians. The Science and Technology (S&T) Internship Program - Green jobs promotes diversity by targeting 50% participation by employment equity groups, with particular emphasis on recruiting from northern, rural and remote communities.

Supporting young Canadians

Young Canadians play an important role in shaping the future of Canada’s green economy. For that, youth need valuable work experience in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields to build a diverse and skilled labour force. Green jobs are the future in a world that increasingly values sustainable practices.

The Science and Technology (S&T) Internship Program – Green Jobs helps young Canadians of diverse backgrounds gain experience in the natural resources sector, including in energy, forestry, mining and earth sciences as well as advance environmental outcomes. The S&T internship program – Green jobs has been part of the Government of Canada’s Youth Employment and Skills Strategy since 1997.
