Placing young Canadians in roles in the clean economy.

  • Up to 80 per cent of an intern’s salary to a maximum of $25,000 for youth from employment equity groups; and

    “Clean Foundation is such a vital and essential resource and support for our work to save the environment and to connect people with nature- as well as to develop skills in youth and support staff retention. Clean also provides invaluable capacity, without which we would have a significantly smaller impact.”
