Internships, Volunteer Opportunities & Career Events


Internships are training opportunities for students or recent graduates of an academic and career-related field to obtain supervised and practical work experience to complement their education.

The following are types of internships available at the City of Winnipeg.

Co-op Placements

  • Co-op Placements provide structured, supervised professional work experience for which a student earns academic credit for their educational program or fulfills the practical experience required for licensing or certification. The City works in partnership with the educational or licensing facility in arranging these placements. Potential applicants to these programs need to talk to the coordinator at the educational or licensing facility they are studying/working for information.


  • The City supports opportunities for successful apprenticeships by working in partnership with colleges, training centres and high schools, the Provincial Government Apprenticeship Branch Training Coordinator and the Government Apprenticeship Authorities. More information on how these apprenticeship opportunities are arranged and regulated can be found on the Government of Manitoba website.

Indigenous Internships

  • The City has exciting internship opportunities available for Indigenous youth ages 15-30 who have completed their education and are looking to enter the workforce. Internships are an ideal way to use your education in a hands-on work environment, gaining valuable skills and experience. As an intern, you will contribute to corporate projects, partner with other City employees and begin to develop your career. Internships last anywhere from 10-24 weeks. Visit our Indigenous Youth website regularly for internship opportunities.

International Engineer Program

The Internationally Educated Engineers Qualification Program (IEEQ) provides a route for immigrants with engineering credentials obtained outside of Canada to meet part of the licensing requirements for professional engineering practice in Manitoba.

Application to this program is made directly with the University of Manitoba. The City works with the University in providing employment opportunities for engineers educated outside of Canada.

Please visit University of Manitoba, Faculty of Engineering for more information.
