Green Jobs Internship Program

Placing young Canadians in roles in the natural resources sector.

The Green Jobs Internship program, funding by Natural Resource Canada, provides employment opportunities for youth ages 15 to 30 in the natural resources sector. Program wage subsidies help Canadian employers in relevant sectors, including energy, forestry, mining and earth sciences, hire the talent they need to grow and innovate.

As a delivery agent for the Green Jobs Internship program, Clean Foundation will subsidize up to:

  • 75 per cent of an intern’s salary to a maximum of $30,000 for Indigenous youth, youth living with a disability, youth living in a northern or remote community; and
  • up to 75 per cent to a maximum of $24,000 for women and racialized youth.
