EMPLOYER SATISFACTION

Venture for Canada's Atlantic Internship Program supports growing businesses with generous wage subsidies and standout student talent. 

WAGE SUBSIDIES

FLEXIBLE PROCESS

EXCEPTIONAL TALENT

New internships begin every four months, and each student intern comes with a $5,000 wage subsidy. Students that are considered underrepresented come with a $7,000 subsidy.

Our funding is easy to access & our hiring process is straightforward.  Unlike other funding programs, our process provides a quick turnaround that works with your fast moving business.

Employ a student from our own pre-qualified Intern talent pool, or bring your own eligible student; both scenarios can be funded by our program.

We are now accepting applications for employers interested in September 2019 Interns.

HOW IT WORKS

APPLY ONLINE

POST YOUR JOB 

HIRE A STUDENT & GET PAID

Our online Company Application is where you share an overview of your organization and how you’d like to engage an intern. It also allows our staff to confirm your company meets our core eligibility. 

You’ll be invited to post your internship positions to our internal Job Board, accessible only to pre-qualified VFC Interns to interview our candidates.

When you’ve found the perfect fit- through our talent pool or your own identified student- we’ll be in touch with a simple funding contract prior to the Intern’s start, and 80% of your funding will be paid via direct deposit within the first four weeks of the internship.
