Intern Canada


What’s Intern Canada?

Introducing our new North American kid on the blog: Intern Canada! Our newest programme is already making huge waves with students and graduates determined to develop their skills in a work environment and see some sights at the same time. With BUNAC’s help, we’ll land you an internship suited to you and your career field for up to one year in the thriving city of Vancouver - widely considered as one of the world’s most liveable cities. We’ve got 99 programmes and Intern Canada IS the one.

What types of internships can I do?

You can do an internship in pretty much any industry of your choice, excluding engineering and medicine. The common industries that we find people placements for are:

  • Communications 
  • Public relations 
  • Marketing 
  • Information technology 
  • Web development / Design 
  • Politics
  • Graphic Design 
  • Fashion 
  • Leisure and tourism 
  • Sports and recreation 
  • Travel and tourism 
  • Environmental and wildlife 
  • Law

However, if your career field is not on this list, we can still help you out. Send us an email to enquiries@bunac.org.uk or call us on 0333 999 7516 to discuss your career goals. 

How much will it cost and what visa do I need?

Our Intern Canada programme offers two different Canadian visa types, depending on your internship placement.

Employer Specific Work Permit: if your internship is going to form part of your academic programme (for example, if you are required to undertake a placement as part of your university course) and you are in the second year of uni or college, you can intern for up to 12 months on the Employer Specific Work Permit. 

Tourist visa: If the above doesn’t apply to you, then we can undertake an internship for up to 6 months on a tourist visa, called an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA). This costs just $7. 

When can I apply?

Our applications for Intern Canada are open YEAR ROUND, but we recommend you to apply at least 12 weeks before you want to start your internship. Get ready to be part of something amazing on our new programme. Let’s kick start your career in Canada.
