AB, Mitacs partner to create internships

November 3, 2020
The Government of Alberta has invested $15M in a partnership with Mitacs to support the creation of 3,800 internships in key economic sectors for postsecondary students. The partnership will see internship opportunities aligned with priority sectors identified in AB’s Recovery Plan. “This funding will help Alberta businesses solve their innovation challenges by connecting them to top post-secondary talent so they can expand their companies, create jobs and grow the provincial economy,” said Mitacs CEO John Hepburn. “At the same time, these opportunities provide Alberta students with invaluable practical skills, applied research experience, and business contacts that will help them get jobs.” Alberta | CTV News (AB)
