NGO “Environmental Defence” is featured on our Wall of Fame for offering paid internships in cites across Ontario!
The interns are paid $12 an hour for approximately 8-14 hours a week for promoting the organization’s campaigns. These internships are made possible through funding from Service Canada in the summer, and through the organization’s general funds for the rest of the year. Recently Environmental Defence has help four of their past interns find full-time positions in this field.
The internship program at Environmental Defence sets a very positive example for how not-for-profit organizations can work within their means to pay their interns and assist them in their careers.
