The Persons with Disabilities Internship program offers meaningful, paid work experience for persons who have a disability. At the National Research Council (NRC), we believe that diversity enhances excellence in research and innovation.
We are committed to a respectful, safe and an inclusive workplace.
The program offers interns a 4-to-6-month term appointment at the NRC in an entry-level position. Your rate of pay is determined by your position's classification group and level.
To ensure a safe and accessible work experience, we will provide various accommodation measures. We also offer an internal network for persons with disabilities, contributing to a more meaningful experience.
