Public Works internships

How internships differ from pathways

Our paid internships are for college or post-secondary students. 

Public Works internships help interns:

  • Gain work experience
  • Build their professional networks through hands on experiences.

This is different from a traditional pathway. There is no guarantee of a fulltime placement at the end of the internship. Although, each year we hire some interns as full-time staff.
