FAQ: I'm not a student, can I do an internship?
No. We'd love to help you, but at this time the employment standards rules of BC, Ontario, and Quebec appear to prevent non students from doing unpaid internships. As for paid internships, provided that it is at minimum wage or above, yes those are possible, though we do not yet offer those (check back in fall 2013).
To read more about rules surrounding internships (or in BC 'practicums'), please visit:
- BC: Employment Standards Act (NB: what we call an 'internship', BC law calls a 'practicum')
- Ontario: Ministry of Labour - Employment Standards
- Quebec: Commission du normes de travail
NB: We are not lawyers, the above is not a legal opinion. It is a lay interpretation of the law. If you need real legal advice, please consult with a lawyer.
