Internships and volunteer opportunities

Many organizations are seeking volunteers to assist them with various types of activities. Volunteering can help you build valuable transferable skills, expand your professional network, contribute to a specific cause, and/or explore career options.

If you are interested in working for a party as a constituency assistant / legislative assistant / policy advisor (political side) / communications assistant, you may benefit from volunteering in your local MP/MPP’s constituency office, and/or volunteering during an election.

If you are interested in exploring a particular research stream, consider looking though the work study programs available at the University. Becoming a Research Assistant and working with a faculty member will provide you with valuable experience that will benefit your academic and professional career.
