CIC launches Indigenous internship program

Crown Investments Corporation (CIC) has launched an Indigenous internship pilot program called “Crown Career Pathways.” The aim of this $1.2M pilot program is to connect Indigenous graduates from eligible postsecondary institutions with permanent careers in the Crown sector, the provincial government, or the private sector. This goal is reportedly in alignment with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action #92. Over the course of two years, the program will hire 22 interns (11 per year) for positions in the Government of Saskatchewan’s Crowns Corporations. “This internship program is an important step in ensuring Indigenous people are represented in our workforce and have quality opportunities across Saskatchewan,” said CIC Minister Dustin Duncan.
