Canadian youth already have the talent and drive to succeed in the labour market. Our government’s continued investment in green jobs through the Youth Employment Strategy will help them transition from school to work; to kick-start their careers and drive Canada’s green future.
A key part of our Youth Employment Strategy is Natural Resources Canada’s Green Jobs Science and Technology Internship Program (STIP). Our government is investing more than $16 million to create 1,200 green jobs for Canadian youth in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) in the natural resource sectors. This investment represents a tenfold increase in the Science Technology Internship Program.
