In August, we launched the new Digital Tech internship stream to help Canadian youth acquire the skills and experience they need to succeed in the digital economy. This two-year initiative, funded by Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED)’s Digital Skills for Youth program, will allow 440 underemployed recent graduates to connect with local employers and gain hands-on work experience.
The new internships will be offered through CICan’s successful Career-Launcher Internship program.
- Total Career-Launcher internships in the Fiscal year 2018-2019: 430
- 95 internships in Digital Technology
- 142 internships in Natural Resources
