Internship Information Session

There was a good discussion on potential internship locations and projects, and how to choose and plan your own. We were joined by current CREATE-AAP student Annie Seagram who shared useful tips and stories about her experience at Environment Canada.

We highly recommend all students to make use of our mentor/student connections and take part in external internships as well as internal internships. 

Remember to refer to the website for how to arrange your internship and the forms required.
