New Magazines Canada Program Supports Paid Interns for Members

Announcing the 2019 Magazines Canada National Paid Internship Program

We are very excited to announce a new program that will help Magazines Canada members across the country connect with new, diverse, skilled talent while providing interns with the paid work experience, job training, mentorship and networking opportunities they need to build careers in the magazine sector.

The Magazines Canada National Paid Internship Program offers participating publishers funding to reimburse 50% of the salary and payroll benefit expenses for a full-time internship position of up to six months.

All Magazines Canada member magazines in good standing are eligible to apply for a paid intern through this program.

2019 Program Details:

Ten subsidized paid internships are available in the 2019 program. Each internship is defined as an up-to-six-month contract position (40 hours per week) with a start date between April and June 2019 and an end date between October and December 2019.

There is a limit of one intern per magazine. Two small magazines (annual print circulation of up to 5,000 copies) can submit a joint application for a shared internship position, as long as each magazine has at least one paid full-time employee to supervise the intern.

Participating publishers will be selected on a “first come, first served basis.” Applications will be evaluated on the publisher’s ability to support the objectives of the paid internship program.
