Project Learning Tree Canada (PLT Canada) is proud to help young Canadians gain the skills and experience they need to succeed in today’s innovative green jobs, thanks to recently announced funding from Natural Resources Canada’s Science and Technology Internship Program (STIP).  As part of this initiative, PLT Canada will provide young people with valuable internships that will hopefully lead to lifelong careers within the forest and conservation sector. Eligible employers can receive up to 80% of the employee’s salary for a maximum of $25,000, and up to $32,000 if the young person is Indigenous, has a visible or non-visible disability, is from a community of less than 5,000 people, or if the internship takes place in Yukon, the Northwest Territories, or Nunavut.  Kathy Abusow, PLT Canada President and CEO, said young people play an important role in shaping the future of the country’s green economy.
