The ClimateSense Professional Internship Program is designed to build climate change adaptation capacity in recent post-secondary graduates as well as host organizations within the public and private sectors. Interns will complete two internship placements: one with a provincial government department or agency and one with a non-governmental organization, business, industry association, or other external organization. Interns will work with mentors within the host organization to complete a sector-specific adaptation project, and will also take part in the ClimateSense Training and Professional Development Program.
The successful intern will have the opportunity to explore climate change adaptation in both the public and private sectors during their placement, garnering valuable experience that will enhance future work opportunities.
