The United Nations Association (UNA) in Canada – Canada Green Corps: Science and Technology Internship Programme (STIP)


The Science and Technology Internship Programme (STIP) is a wage subsidy programme designed to elevate or create green careers for youth in Canada in the natural resource sector.

Comments on Funding:

Funding is a wage subsidy of up to 80%, to a maximum of:

  • $23,250 per placement for all types of green positions in natural resources, including STEM;
  • $32,000 for Youth Furthest from Employment (YFE).
