Creating 3,800 new student internships

Alberta is helping students gain world-class research skills and driving innovation by supporting more than 3,800 new Mitacs internships.

In partnership with Mitacs, post-secondary institutions and employers, Alberta’s government is growing internship opportunities to build hands-on learning opportunities for students, researchers, and industry partners.

Hands-on learning is critical to helping students get the skills and training they need, and to prepare them for success in their careers. This partnership supports Alberta’s Recovery Plan, and helps ensure our province has the talent and ability to get Albertans back to work, meet labour market demands, and give students important experience needed for their future
