Career Focus Program

Important Notices

The Career Focus application period is now closed.

Applications are accepted between November 1 and November 30 each year for internships beginning on or after April 1 of the following year.

The Career Focus Program will help fund 65 agricultural internships for Canadian graduates. Each internship will last at least four months to a maximum of 12 months. They will be long enough to provide meaningful experience to the employee.

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) is one of several federal departments participating in the Career Focus Program. Please note that this program is not a summer employment program.

Available Funding

The Career Focus Program within AAFC will provide $864,000 each year to projects that hire recent graduates in agriculture, agri-food science and veterinary medicine.

Each approved project will be eligible to receive 50% of total eligible costs, up to a maximum of $20,000 in matching funds. Applications are processed through rounds and on a first come, first served basis pending availability of funds.
