Science Horizons


Environment Canada participates in one of the Youth Employment Strategy (YES) through the Science Horizons Youth Internship Program. The Science Horizons Program is a collaborative effort with Canadian universities, the private sector and other non-government organizations which offer promising young scientists and post-secondary graduates hands-on experience working on environmental projects under the mentorship and coaching of experienced scientists and program managers. The students will be engaged in projects which tackle a range of issues such as tracking invasiveness of Norway Maple or testing the application of lichen monitoring as an indicator of air pollution. The EMAN Coordinating Office is pleased to be partnering with the following successful applicants and their interns in 2007-2008: Gault Nature Reserve Mersey Tobeatic Research Institute Citizens’ Environment Watch Fredericton Area Watersheds Association McGill University, Morgan Arboretum Manitoba Model Forest Protect our Water and Environmental Resources A Rocha Canada H2O Chelsea Project
