Green Corps is UNA-Canada’s innovative new youth employment programme designed to bridge talented, yet un- and underemployed, Canadian youth to meaningful employment to ignite Canada’s green economy. Green Corps participants will undertake four or six-month work-integrated learning placements with various companies, governments, associations, universities and civil society organizations across Canada, but particularly our cities of focus: Vancouver, Whitehorse, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Halifax. Green Corps participants may assist their employer organizations and communities in reducing their environmental footprint and increasing sustainability. Additionally, Green Corps participants may engage their communities over the course of their placements, helping to identify and address environmental “quick wins” in their communities and workplaces.
We are currently looking to fill positions starting between end of March (6 month placements) and end of May (4 month placements). This timing is ideal for soon-to-be or recent grads!
Getting that all-important first job! There is no substitute for practical, real-world work experience.

Although the minimum requirement is to have completed high school, applicants with college, CEGEP, diploma, bachelor, masters and PhD degrees are also welcome to apply. Some fields that Green Corps has positions for are: Marketing and communications, engineering, community engagement/education, information technology, art and music, trade/technical, business/economics, research, policy and governance, law, and the sciences to name a few.
*Please note that all the candidates who applied in a previous call for application must reapply to still be considered for a position.
