Canada Green Corps

Science and Technology Internship Programme


Canada Green Corps - Science and Technology Internship Programme (CGC -STIP)

In partnership with Natural Resources Canada, CGC-STIP is dedicated to creating and providing quality green employment opportunities for youth in the natural resource sector by offering up to 75% wage subsidies to employers across Canada.


These green jobs should create positive environmental outcomes and have a strong tie to one of the natural resources sectors: energy, forestry, mining and earth sciences.

Participant Feedback



This new job has taught me tenfold what I knew about how electricity works, hardware basics as well as installation processes, and furthermore how to run a successful business from the ground up. [It] has certainly changed my career outlook and where I see myself in 5 years. [It] has provided me with a new found spark in a vastly growing industry and has lit a fire under me to learn everything I possibly can about solar.
