Canada is a country in the North of America, Canada consists of 10 provinces and with almost 10 million square kilometers it is the second-largest country in the world in terms of area.
In total, about 32 million people live in Canada. Ottawa is the capital of Canada, Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver are the three largest metropolises in Canada. Most internships can be found in these cities. Most students who do an internship in Canada opt for an internship in Vancouver or Montreal, but these are certainly not the only places where you can find a good internship.
Finances and internship compensation in Canada
When doing an internship abroad, always make sure that you know how much money you need and whether you earn anything during your internship. The costs of living in Canada are relatively low although it can be expensive in a big city to find good accommodation. Most internship agencies arrange this for you for a fee.
With an internship in Canada it is not usual that you receive an internship compensation. Just like in some other countries, an internship within a company is seen as a great opportunity for students to learn, not to make money.
It never hurts to research which scholarships may be available to you. It may be that your educational institution grants scholarships to students doing internships in Canada. Often you have to arrange this yourself. Read more about scholarships for an internship abroad on this page.
