The Indigenous Intern Leadership Program, launched in the Fall of 2018, has been made possible by the B.C. Assembly of First Nations and the Business Council of B.C. through their joint Champions Table, along with the support of Vancouver Island University and the Government of British Columbia. This program brings together qualifying recent Indigenous Graduates from all BC post-secondary institutions with B.C. employers for two-year work opportunities, providing a rich experience for both the intern and the other firm employees. The internship will provide workplace skills and training beyond the Interns' formal studies while building a foundation for leadership and a lasting career. Through this initiative, we hope to strengthen and increase the capacity within Indigenous communities as well as advance economic reconciliation, community development, cultural preservation, and respect.
