Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada has announced funding under the Agriculture Youth Green Jobs Initiative.

The Agricultural Youth Green Jobs Initiative will help fund internships for post-secondary graduates working in the agriculture industry. These internships would include activities or projects that benefit the environment. Please note that this is not a summer employment program.

Funding is available through the following two streams:

  1. Green Farms Stream: Farm operators could receive up to a maximum of $10,000 per intern to implement projects that are environmentally beneficial.
  2. Green Internships Stream: Employers in the agricultural sector but not directly on farm could receive up to a maximum of $16,000 per intern to undertake environmental activities, services or research that will benefit the agriculture sector.
