This opportunity and the significant experience it will provide will allow you to stand out from other candidates. This remote internship can also serve as a springboard for a future job or in-person internship in Canada!
There are many advantages to doing a remote internship. While global trends indicate that companies are moving towards a flexible labour policy and that international mobility is at a record level, your remote internship will demonstrate that:
- You can work remotely, which is currently becoming an extremely sought-after skill within a digital culture.
- Remote work also demonstrates to a potential employer that an employee is organized, autonomous and responsible.
- An employee who works remotely and performs important tasks without constant supervision shows reliability.
- Remote internships help you develop concrete skills that will help you strengthen your CV.
- A remote internship allows you to manage your own work schedule.
- A remote internship is much more flexible on the dates and period of internship.
- A remote internship saves you the cost of travel and living abroad while still benefiting from the advantages of an international internship.
- A remote internship does not require all the administrative steps of gaining a Visa. This option is especially beneficial if your country is not part of the youth agreements with Canada. This remote option can then encourage a company to sponsor you for a work Visa.
- An internship allows you to expand your network.
- You will gain experience working with a Canadian company while physically working from anywhere in the world.
- You will acquire new technical skills.
- A remote internship is a great springboard to Canada and can lead to a full-time job once your internship is completed.

At EIC, we understand that your plans can change. That is why we offer a lifetime credit for all EIC program fees paid in advance. If you must postpone your internship or change the destination city, you will obtain a full credit that can be applied against future fees. Bear in mind that program fees can change over time, and candidates are subject to prevailing fees at the time of re-application. Note that the credit is transferable to direct family members only.
EIC accepts candidates into the program on a continuous basis. However, we recommend that candidates apply as early as possible, given the due process for admissibility and the unpredictability of the visa application process. Applicants cannot begin the internship without a visa; we recommend that students apply to the EIC program at least one month before the start of the desired internship period to avoid any delay.
EIC’s team of experts evaluates each application to ensure that the best candidates are admitted into the program. That is why each applicant goes through a personalized interview process. We are mindful that some opportunities can be time sensitive. That is why we will communicate the admissibility decision as soon as possible. Candidates should expect to receive the Decision within 3-5 business days following the EIC Initial admissibility interview.
Our international programs are highly competitive, with limited places in each of the industries and destinations. As such, applicants are required to confirm their candidacy and pay the deposit within the prescribed deadlines:
For internships beginning within less than 120 days of the admissibility confirmation
→ Confirmation is required within 5 business days following the admissibility confirmation
For internships beginning in over 120 days of the admissibility confirmation
→ Confirmation is required within 10 business days following the admissibility confirmation
Note that once the confirmation delay has elapsed, any candidate that wishes to re-engage in the program must complete and submit a new application.
Our remote internship program is a career investment that will provide you with a clear advantage in the professional workplace. International work experience will undoubtedly help you land your dream job in the future. You will have shown a capability to thrive in a new working environment alongside people with all types of professional and cultural backgrounds. Several EIC alumni have received full-time job offers from their employers after the internship period. Of course, there is no guarantee that all candidates will obtain employment offers after their EIC internship.
EIC works with numerous employers across Canada, all of whom have a changing internship availability depending on their needs and the seasonal needs of the business. Furthermore, EIC is also consistently creating new partnerships and as such, there is no static list of all employment opportunities available. Because of the variable nature of the business, there is no warranty that a candidate could select a specific company for an internship.
Each selected candidate has a guaranteed professional internship opportunity in their desired field. EIC has vast experience in finding the right employer-intern fit and our dedicated staff will do its best to ensure that all parties are satisfied. All our current partner companies undergo a thorough verification process by which EIC can confirm that the employers’ work environment will provide for the most enriching internship experience.
Our refund policy is a testament to our determination: we are so confident that we will place you in the field of your choice, that we will otherwise provide a full refund. This guarantees that you will have a memorable and satisfactory internship experience in Canada.
Due to the high number of applications, our dedicated program specialists are currently working only with candidates that have officially confirmed their participation in the program.
As soon as you have confirmed your spot and paid the required deposit, you will be contacted by the placement team to build your professional profile. Your profile will be based on your prior work experience (if any), your educational path, and your general career objectives. This joint effort between candidates and EIC ensures that all participants in the program are presented with the internship opportunities that will best match their needs, goals, and interests.
Once the above is finalized, the placement team will begin searching for the employer & internship that best fits your profile. EIC staff will coach you to prepare you for the interviews that will help you lock-in the internship of your choice!
Most of the program participants are successful during the interview process, as our dedicated staff carefully pairs candidates and employers for the best possible match.
International internships are generally full-time, work-intensive jobs that require 35 to 40 hours work weeks. Depending on your location, your employer will determine a work schedule that best fits your situation.
Depending on your school program, you may be able to obtain credit for your internship. Typically, if an internship is mandatory for your program of studies, then you will obtain the corresponding credits if conditions are met (e.g., signed practical experience declarations). The candidate is responsible for meeting all the requirements mandated by the educational institution.
