Canadian Geographic wants you!

Canadian Geographic, the country’s fourth most-read magazine, takes on interns throughout the year at our head office in Ottawa. Duties for editorial interns include writing for the magazine, website and blog, fact-checking articles, research and story development as well as participation in editorial meetings.

At present, we only offer internships to students recieving course credit from accredited post-secondary institutions, but our program gives interns meaningful, fulfilling work experience, insight into the inner workings of an internationally-acclaimed 90-plus-year-old magazine published by a not-for-profit society, and a head start on a career in media.

Length of internships range from two to six weeks, and aren’t necessarily five days a week or eight hours a day (although preference is given to applications who can commit to full-time or near-full-time hours). We prefer students with either experience or interest in the environment, wildlife, history, culture and science journalism. While experience at journalism school is helpful, other candidates will be considered. We also host remote internships.

To apply, email [email protected] and send a cover letter (which should include reference to your accredited post-secondary institution), resume, three writing samples — or links to your photo/multimedia work, if applicable — and indicate what time period you’re available.
