BioTalent Canada is an association focused on growth of Canada’s bio-economy. To qualify for funding, either the position needs to have a biotechnology focus, or the employer needs to have a biotechnology focus. Sectors include bio-health, bio-energy, bio-industrial and agri-biotech. Opportunities must be full-time for 16 weeks, and for students enrolled Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math (STEAM) or Business programs. Funding is provided for net new positions – over and above what the employers usually hires and for new positions that previously did not exist. Applications are accepted year-round.
