A new federal pilot program will help colleges and polytechnics partner with businesses and non-profits to provide paid internships for students. A Government of Canada release reports that the new program builds on the federal government’s commitment to invest $221M into Mitacs as part of an effort to create 10,000 paid internships for postsecondary students each year. Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Navdeep Bains stated that the “expansion of Mitacs’ paid internship program to students at colleges and institutes reflects our government’s understanding of the critical role that these institutions play in Canada’s research and innovation ecosystem.”
