The Forest Products Association of Canada (FPAC) is pleased to announce the winners of this year’s 2016 Green Dream Internship program.
Ten students will receive a scholarship and their choice of an iPad mini or GoPro to help them blog this summer about their adventures as interns in Canada’s forest products industry. The blogs will be posted on TheGreenestWorkforce.ca, an online tool highlighting the future of the forest products industry and job opportunities available across the country.
“Supporting and encouraging highly talented young people is a priority for our industry, and it’s also important for the Canadian economy.” said Derek Nighbor, CEO of FPAC. “These interns are the future of our industry and we want to follow their adventures as they explore our industry and share their stories.” He added further.
The Green Dream blogs will give students the opportunity to share their adventures over the course of a summer work placement in Canada’s forest products industry. Students from all walks of life, studying in various fields, such as forestry, human resources, chemical engineering and environmental science, will share their stories online.
The GreenestWorkforce.ca features stories from a variety of employees working in the forest products industry who found their careers in the sector because they were looking for an adventure, to make a difference and to feel valued.
