Canada Institute entry-level position: Deadline: June 1st

There is an opening in the Canada Institute for a program assistant. Great position for a graduating senior. Advice to applicants: read the instructions VERY carefully (you can add a supplement to the resume).


Two years ago, a group of six consortium members drove from Seattle to Prince George and focused our discussions on the Canadian Norths. It was a rich, cross/interdisciplinary week. The conversations and comradery were superb.

This summer PNWCSC will host another field course; this one focused on the Columbia River. As we discussed at the AGM, our goal this year is to include both faculty and advanced students to further enrich the discussion. Please pass the word and join us for what will be a very enlightening expedition.

Here are the details, at this point.
Contact: (Morna McEachern)
Focus: Columbia River Treaty (and the river itself)
When: June 18-24, 2015
Where: University of British Columbia, Okanagan and traveling along the Columbia.
Start/finish in Seattle or meet us in Kelowna on the evening of June 18.
Cost: $50 registration and your own food/incidentals. Transportation (we will need a few people who can drive vans) and lodging will be covered.
Number of participants: 10
Format: two days at UBCO (one including a visit to a First Nations’ salmon hatchery, the other focused on discussions of the treaty)


The Canadian Consulate General Seattle invites American university students who wish to experience an internship with a foreign government in the United States to apply for the 2015 Intern Programme. These positions are non-paid. At no time is an Employer-Employee relationship created and students may terminate their internship at any time as may the Consulate. Most interns earn course-credit through an independent study.
