Over 900 new green internship opportunities available for students as Canada builds back better
“I encourage students and businesses to take part in this fantastic program aimed at creating jobs for youth in the clean-technology sector. As Canada continues to safely restart our economy and build a more sustainable future, your skills, passion, and expertise will help to scale up our efforts to fight climate change and reach our goals of being net zero by 2050.”
– The Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Environment and Climate Change
“The ability to attract and develop top talent from across BC and Canada is a source of our strength and innovation. Our interns through the Science Horizons Youth Internship Program have helped us become the mission-driven, collaborative, and innovative company we are today. We extend our thanks to Minister Wilkinson and Environment and Climate Change Canada for nurturing programs like this one, which create opportunities in the innovation economy. These are the jobs that will help lead our province and our country to economic strength and recovery in these challenging times and beyond.”
– Karn Manhas, founder and Chief Executive Officer, Terramera
“My internship through the Science Horizons Youth Internship Program helped me discover what I love to do, get a foot in the industry door, and led to a permanent position as a research technician at Terramera, where I continue to learn and grow. Internship placements have played an indispensable role in my academic and career development, and I’m happy that others will benefit from the same opportunities.”
– Melody Sizer, former Science Horizons intern
