The Indigenous Intern Leadership Program, made possible by the BC Assembly of First Nations and the Business Council of British Columbia through their joint Champions Table, brings together qualifying recent Indigenous Graduates with BC employers for two-year work opportunities.

This program provides an opportunity for an Indigenous graduate to hold meaningful employment within a business organization for the next two years. By giving them workplace skills and training beyond their program learning, graduates will build a foundation towards a lasting career while being supported as future leaders in business and BC’s economy. This opportunity will work to strengthen and increase the capacity within Indigenous communities. Long term, this will assist in advancing economic reconciliation, community development, cultural preservation, and respect.
