As an example of the exciting challenges interns will tackle, the Policetech Engineering Intern will work with the winner of the V13 Policetech Accelerator Pitch to the Chief™ competition to co-develop a new device application on the Helium network.
“What we’re hearing from former interns is that working with NCFDC provides real-world experience and training that was directly beneficial to their long-term career aspirations,” said Joe Miller, Business Development Office at NCFDC and V13 Policetech Accelerator lead. “And we in turn benefit from engaging with highly energetic students and recent graduates who are passionate about making a difference in the world of community innovation here at Venture13.”

*International students are not eligible for the CSJ. International students include anyone who is temporarily in Canada for studies and who is not a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or person who has been granted refugee status in Canada. Youth awaiting a refugee status ruling, as well as those who hold a temporary visitor visa, youth visa or work visa are ineligible, as the objective of the Canada Summer Jobs program is to support youth entering the Canadian labour market, the temporary nature of an international student’s time in Canada does not allow for a long-term connection to the labour market.
