Ontario Trails - Where you'll find the World's Best variety in geography and seasonality on Ontario Trails!

Carolinian Canada Coalition

Employers Apply Now Until October 19
Bailey Schneider at RARE
CCC is pleased to announce an opportunity for you to hire interns from The University of Waterloo Faculty of Environment for the Winter Co-op Term. This is the sixth year where CCC has made funding available in conjunction with our university partners.
Stewardship Training & Employment: Who can Get Involved?
This partnership program matches employers with Environment students to carry out habitat stewardship and research work for species and habitats in the coastal watersheds of the Carolinian Life Zone. Opportunities are provided by stewardship employers and cost-shared by university partners. Each placement provides a 4 month work term in targeted habitat stewardship and research projects. The program is open to:

  • University of Waterloo Faculty of Environment winter co-op students
  • Employers including businesses, non-government organizations and government agencies that are members of the Carolinian Canada Coalition
  • Projects in stewardship, research and planning in the coastal watersheds of the Carolinian Life Zone of southwestern Ontario.
Interested students should apply through their University co-op program.
“The first time we participated in the CSI Program was summer, 2011. The Program allowed us to access top-notch student expertise from the University of Waterloo, and enabled us to complete a comprehensive assessment of the Detroit River shoreline including an evaluation of fish species at risk enhancement opportunities. I highly recommend the program to any conservation organization because it facilitates access to one of the best University Coop programs in the Country, and is a straightforward administrative process.”
- Matthew Child, Director of Watershed Restoration, Essex Region Conservation Authority
