Food Producer And Processor Career Internship Program

The Food Producer and Processor Career Internship Program provides support to the local food production and processing sector with hiring an intern. Support is available, for up to 70 per cent of an intern’s salary and mandatory employment related costs, for seasonal or year-round career-focused positions that lead to permanent employment.

Eligible employers are primary food producers (vegetables, dairy, grains, fruit, forage and livestock), non-profits involved in food processing, and First Nations within the the Trust region that are food production/processing focused, have been in operation a minimum of one year and that have a demonstrated fiscal and organizational need for an intern and wage funding.

You will have six months from the date of your application approval to recruit an eligible intern and have them start in the position.
