Since 2018, the GreenPAC Parliamentary Internship for the Environment program has sought to equip the next generation of environmental leaders with the skills, experience, and political know-how to enact policy change. The program provides a 10-month, full-time internship for young leaders, aged 18-30, who are placed in the offices of Members of Parliament and Senators with a demonstrated track record of leadership on the environment.
Metcalf has supported the program since its inception, and over the last four years 31 interns have gained hands-on experience on Parliament Hill while providing invaluable support for current environmental champions in elected office.
The 2022/23 cohort will include a record high 10 interns placed in the offices of Conservative, Liberal, New Democrat, and Green MPs and in the Senate. Meet these young leaders and learn more about their placements below.
