Federal Internship for Newcomers Program (FINP)


The Federal Internship for Newcomers Program (FINP) provides newcomers with valuable temporary Canadian work experience and training opportunities with federal government departments and other public and private sector organizations. Interested candidates must contact World Skills Employment Centre  – or SITO (if residing in Quebec) – to register and learn how they can apply for FINP.

Prior to the FINP competition each year, World Skills, in partnership with other Immigrant Serving Organization (ISOs), delivers information sessions which are the first choice to learn about qualifying for, and applying to FINP. Following an informative presentation, newcomers have the opportunity to have questions answered. The sessions are delivered in English and French.

Internships are offered in fields such as policy, administration, project management, computer science, and finance. A mentor will be provided for the duration of the internship.

In addition to gaining work experience, successful candidates will:

  • Learn about Canadian workplace culture
  • Understand the federal government hiring process
  • Network with members of the public service
  • Attend orientation sessions or training
