The program provides valuable experience for Ukrainian-Canadian university graduates to work on Parliament Hill and helps develop the next generation of Ukrainian Canadian leaders.
“The UCC Parliamentary Internship is an excellent way for youth to get involved and gain experience in the democratic process in Canada,” stated Demyan Hyworon, Chair of the UCC Charitable & Education Trust.
“We highly encourage and recommend for young people to apply for this exceptional program.”
The internships are scheduled to begin during the fall session of Parliament, in late September 2021. Interns will have the opportunity to work at the federal level, potentially with Members of Parliament, Senators, or other opportunities. The UCC will continue to strictly follow all guidelines and directives from federal, provincial and local authorities in implementing our Parliamentary Internship Program.
Interested applicants are encouraged to participate in an Information Session taking place March 17, 2021 at 8:00 pm eastern with the Program Director and alumni.

The UCC Parliamentary Internship Program is currently in its fifth year and has provided valuable experiences for all of its alumni which has led then to further professional employment opportunities in public service.
“Reflecting on my 2018/2019 Parliamentary Internship position, I learned a lot about the political process in Canada and how Parliament works,” stated Larysa Lubka-Lewyckyj, 2019 Internship Alumna. “This was an invaluable experience that has provided me with many opportunities, which was made available by the Ukrainian Canadian Congress and its donors.”
The Parliamentary Internship Program is a program of the UCC Charitable & Education Trust, and is supported by the Roman Waschuk and Oksana Smerechuk Fund, established last year.
The Parliamentary Internship program is supported by generous donations from individuals and organizations, including the Shevchenko Foundation Ukrainian Canadian Veterans Fund, the Ukrainian National Federation and the Ukrainian Credit Union Ltd.
