Creating jobs for Canada’s environmental workforce.
EYC Internship Program
Funded through Environment and Climate Change Canada’s Science Horizons Program, the Environmental Youth Corps (EYC) EYC Internship Program gives eligible employers who work in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics, up to 50% of an intern’s salary (up to $15,000) for new full-time environmental jobs.
EYC Internships typically last 12 months and are intended to lead to permanent employment.
We are accepting applications for the 2016 EYC program.
*Please note you’ll have 30 days from your date of approval to recruit an eligible intern.
