About the National Paid Internship Program
Magazines Canada’s 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.
Ten subsidized paid internships are available in 2020. Each internship is defined as an up-to-six-month contract position (40 hours per week, or provincial equivalent full-time hours) with an end date of December 2020.
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.
All Magazines Canada member magazines in good standing are eligible to apply for a paid intern through the 2020 program, providing they have not participated in the 2019 National Paid Internship Program.
How to Apply for the 2020 Program
Applications are evaluated on the publisher’s ability to support the objectives of the National Paid Internship Program. Magazines Canada will also fulfill the following criteria in the overall selection of the 2020 cohort of publishers:
- Diversity of geographic regions across Canada.
- French-language and English-language publishers.
- Inclusion of small publishers, defined as having an annual print circulation of up to 5,000 copies.
