Applying as a Student

At Environment Canada, we take student employment seriously and see student work terms as a chance to identify high-performing potential recruits for permanent employment. Students who work with Environement Canada can be hired into permanent positions upon graduation through a process called bridging.

So, working as a student can mean a foot in the door and the fast track to a career with the federal government. We offer excellent compensation and benefits, flexible work arrangements, opportunities for advancement, continuous learning, work-life balance and a range of opportunities that are second to none.

Federal Student Work Experience Program (FSWEP)

Environment Canada has hundreds of summer jobs and part-time work for qualified students across the country. To make yourself available to hiring managers at Environment Canada, all you have to do is register for FSWEP and indicate your interest in our department.

Post-secondary Co-op / Internship Program

Many secondary and post-secondary students need to do co-op work terms or internships as a part of their academic program. Environment Canada has many interesting work terms, available now in a number of areas such as international policy and trade, economic analysis, marketing, policy development, program implementation, administration, human resources, finance, accounting, science and technology, and communications.
