UVic Masters Students Research Unpaid Internships

Isabelle Couture and James Attfield approached the Canadian Intern Association in March 2013 with an idea: to research and write their masters thesis on unpaid internships. Couture and Attfield are both University of Victoria students in the Master’s of Public Public Administration program. Over the past year, we have worked with these students as they developed the Canadian Internship Survey and conducted interviews with interns across Ontario.

An article released Sunday written by Lee-Anne Goodman from The Canadian Press has been reprinted by news sources across Canada:

Stay tuned for the results of Couture and Attfield’s research!
