Youth play an important role in shaping the future of Canada’s economy. The Science and Technology (S&T) Internship Program – Green Jobs provides wage subsidies to eligible employers across Canada to hire and mentor youth in the natural resources sector, including in energy, forestry, mining, earth science, and clean technology.

ECO Canada is offering these internship opportunities in partnership with Natural Resources Canada that will provide wage funding for 1,500 youth jobs in Canada’s green economy.

In partnership with the Government of Canada, ECO Canada provides direct funding for co-op student positions and full-time new hires in STEM, digital skills, environmental and sustainability roles. This funding is available to all organizations for those areas, even if you’re not in a dedicated environmental economic sector.

Benefits for Employers:

  • Increase work capacity
  • Access talented youth with new ideas & skills
  • Increase employee retention
  • Reduce staff training costs
  • Strengthen overall business operations
  • Support the growth of new qualified environmental workers
