Internship Opportunities

If you would like to increase your knowledge, expertise, and skills as you gain work experience, then learn more about our Internship Program.

Through our internship program, we help build capacity for selected candidates by providing opportunities to increase their knowledge, expertise, and skills, while helping them to advance their careers by expanding and building their networks and experience.

Candidates living and/or studying in North America (Canada, Mexico, United States) and interested in careers in environment, law, international diplomacy, or another CEC-relevant area of expertise, are welcome to apply to our internship program. Candidates from other countries must demonstrate notable interest in North American environmental issues and/or trade relations.

For in-person internships, a candidate’s legal right to work in Canada as a Canadian citizen, a student with a visa for studies in Canada, or having a work permit obtained by the student with assistance from the CEC Secretariat, is a requirement.

Interns can engage in different internship streams and formats:

  • In-person / virtual / hybrid
  • Short-term (1–12 weeks) / Long-term (3–12 months)
  • Remunerated / non-remunerated
  • Full-time / part-time

If you are interested in applying for a CEC internship and there are no open calls for applications posted on the CEC website, please share your curriculum vitae (CV) and cover letter with us at [internships@cec.org] and we will gladly review your application and assess if there is an opportunity for you.
