About Canadian Embassy

Designed to foster better relations with their neighbors, the Canadian Embassy internship program gives interns a “behind the scenes” look into international political policy. The embassy oversees maple leaf natives living in areas from eastern Pennsylvania to Virginia, and is one of 13 consulate offices throughout the United States.

Interns work four-and-a-half days a week and are screened for the department that best suits their skills and interests. Placements include public affairs, academic relations, culture, press/media, information services, trade, environment, energy and congressional relations.


Open to Canadian and American college and graduate students. Students with a GPA of at least 3.5 are preferred.
