What are Work Internships?

Our work internship program matches students with related employers across Canada and internationally, who provide students with short duration projects that can be completed from home. Work Internships can be voluntary or paid. They provide students with excellent work experience related to the students’ field of study, great networking with employers, a reference letter for future job applications and, for paid internships, a stipend or honorarium. Stipends are paid through the Level UP program* at a flat rate of $1400 per project completed. Honoraria are variable and the actual amounts will depend on the employer. Register and login to gain access to our internship opportunities.

* available to students who are Canadian Citizens, Permanent Residents or those with an eligible refugee status

What is Level UP?

The Riipen Level UP program is funded by the Federal government of Canada for eligible students. The program matches students with short duration real-world projects related to their fields of study. Projects can be completed from home, students will be mentored along the way by an employer, projects can be completed in about 80 hours over 2-8 weeks, and each student is paid $1400 per project completed.

As an Indigenous person, having recently returned to my home community of Gitwangak, BC, I wasn’t sure how I could stay in my community to contribute where I am needed, without sacrificing my education as a part-time student in the UBC indigenous studies program. Contact North BC, in collaboration with Q&A Innovations Online, provided me that opportunity. Read full story...

“I’ve learned how to figure out solutions to real challenges on my own, to work in teams, and be efficient. The project management and teamwork skills I gained were essential for me because I will definitely need them in the future. All of these were incredible benefits that make this program especially valuable for students.”

Terrace, BC

Right now I‘m doing a paid internship project for a company out in Toronto. It's geared toward mental health and connecting people with professionals all over Canada, such as lawyers, doctors and counsellors. And I started that last week so it's 5 hours a week for four months. And then I also just got contacted yesterday about a different internship that I had signed up for… more geared towards the work that I'm doing right now. I’m really looking forward to completing the two internships. It’s pretty cool. And when I finish them, I’ll have some great professional experience, plus I get paid $1400 for each one. Which is also nice.
