This is a great year for YCW internships, as they’re funding four times the usual number. If you’ve been waiting to digitize a valuable collection, now is your chance! The application deadline has been extended to March 4th and we’d be happy to help you with any details regarding digitization, VITA, training, or resources for your staff.

As requested by many institutions, the Canadian Council of Archives is pleased to announce an extension to the YCW Internship deadline.

The new deadline is now Friday March 2nd, for the archival community and the library community (for libraries operating in English).
All applications received by the original deadline of February 1st are being processed, and those institutions may also apply for additional new projects, if desired.

More funding = more applications to be approved by the Canadian Council of Archives!
This year again, as part of the Youth Employment Strategy of the Government of Canada, we have been allocated supplemental funding by the Department of Canadian Heritage, which means that we will be able to help fund 4 times as many internship projects than usual.

A reminder that you can apply for multiple internships!
