NS, Mitacs partner to increase internship opportunities


Nova Scotia has partnered with Mitacs to increase the number of internships for students and graduates in the province. The province will be leveraging investments to invest $13M into the creation of up to 3,200 more internship opportunities over the next four years. The internships will provide opportunities for college and university students, post-doctoral researchers, and recent graduates to contribute to local companies; provide participants with work-integrated learning opportunities; and increase retention of postsecondary talent. “This program has increased productivity while creating new jobs and opportunities,” said NS Minister of Advanced Education Brian Wong. “Added research funding strengthens our commitment to invest in post-secondary students to make Nova Scotia an affordable and desirable place to build a life and career.”
