TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Magazines Canada is pleased to announce that applications are now open
for Canadian magazine publishers to participate in Magazines
Canada’s 2019 National Paid Internship Program

Made possible with support from the Government of Canada via the
Department of Canadian Heritage’s Canada Periodical Fund, Collective
Initiatives component, this new program is designed to help Magazines
Canada members across the country connect with new, skilled talent,
while providing interns with the paid work experience, job training,
mentorship and networking opportunities they need to build careers in
the magazine sector.

The 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.

“By supporting ambitious, talented interns with paid work at a Canadian
magazine as they enter the industry, the National Paid Internship
Program supports the sustainability of Canada’s magazines in a time of
rapid, transformative change,” said Melanie Rutledge, Executive Director
of Magazines Canada. “It creates a way into the industry for people with
relevant skills and the desire to work in magazines. It supports
Canadian magazines in attracting, recruiting, hiring and training young
Canadians interested in careers in journalism, content creation and
magazine media. And it has a direct bottom-line impact on Canada’s
economy by creating knowledge-economy work opportunities for Canadians
in a dynamic sector.”

2019 Program Details

Ten paid internships are available in the 2019 program. Each internship
is defined as an up-to-six-month contract position (40 hours per week)
with a start date between April and June 2019 and an end date between
October and December 2019.

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.

Participating publishers will be selected on a “first come, first served
basis.” Applications will be evaluated on the publisher’s ability to
support the objectives of the program.

Simply complete the application form and submit it to Magazines Canada
any time during the enrollment period, beginning April 15, 2019 and
ending when the 10 internships have been allocated.

All Magazines Canada members in good standing are eligible to apply for
a paid intern through this program.
