Canadian Intern Rights Guide

The Canadian Intern Association is very pleased to present the Canadian Intern Rights Guide, the first ever comprehensive publication on workplace rights for interns in Canada!

The Guide provides a summary of employment, health and safety, and human rights for interns in each province and the federal sector in the “know your rights” section. The Guide also features “claim back your pay” information, recommendations for law reform, and best practices for employers and academic institutions.

**PLEASE NOTE: There have recently been important changes to employment legislation across Canada. We are working to update the information on this site. Please verify the state of the law in your jurisdiction.**
