Agricultural 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.
