Career Edge

Career Edge is a national, not-for-profit organization whose mandate is to enhance youth employability. The program is aimed at graduates of university, college and high school who have finished their education but who lack career-related work experience.

By completing a six-, nine-, or twelve-month paid internship in one of the program's Host Organizations, the Interns gain the skills and experience they need to become more marketable in the workplace.
