​The B.C. Legislative Internship Program is now accepting applications. See How to Apply​ for more information.

​Background

The British Columbia Legislative Internship Program was established in January 1976, patterned after the Parliamentary Internship Program introduced in the Canadian House of Commons in 1969. Faculty members of the then three major universities in British Columbia initiated the program. The program continues to be advised by the University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University, the University of Victoria and the University of Northern British Columbia.

The program is open to B.C. residents who have a recent Bachelor's Degree from a Canadian University.

I'd like to express my appreciation for you people who are taking the time to post in this thread.

Eight years ago, the industry I was working in went belly-up and I can tell you that when it comes to trying to find a new livelihood, every source of leads is both valuable and appreciated.

Between ex (as opposed to retired) military types and various civilians who may peruse this site, you never know who might benefit from the information posted here. Especially considering the hammering that the oil patch is taking right now.

I know first-hand how much it sucks having to pull up stakes and start over again at the bottom. It sucks even worse to have nowhere to go, so thanks again and please do keep it up.

A volunteer position but good training and contacts:

North Shore Rescue is looking for some new blood to join the team. The volunteer group is accepting applications for potential new members until Friday, Jan. 8.

“Just through attrition, we’re starting to see a bit of turnover now so we’re really looking for a new injection of keen volunteers. To put it really simply: people who are willing to crash around in the bush and be ground-pounders. That’s what we need,” said Mike Danks, North Shore Rescue team leader. “There’s a lot of camaraderie on the team. It kind of becomes a way of life when you’ve been on the team for five years-plus,” he said. No bones about it, committing to the team requires a lot of time and flexibility in order to be present for training and rescue calls, which have a habit of coming in at the most inopportune times and lasting for hours or days, Danks said. But saving lives has a way of being addictive, Danks added. “When I first started, I was just so incredibly keen and excited when the pager went off in those days. It’s like the hunt is on, trying to find the person in need,” he said. The ideal new member is someone who not just knows the trails but is also a model hiker – someone who carries a first-aid kit and extra equipment to be able to help another hiker in need. You still get to recreate in the North Shore Mountains, Danks said, you’re just more likely to be helping carry someone on your way back out. Applications can be made through northshorerescue.com. - See more at: http://www.nsnews.com/news/north-shore-rescue-seeks-new-volunteers-1.2144044#sthash.T8pj4nE7.26G2vfkO.dpuf

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Feb. 10, 2016 /CNW/ -- Signarama Canada is excited to announce the launch of Opportunities for Veterans, a program that offers an established turnkey business opportunity that truly recognizes military personnel for their years of service.

Signarama is soliciting applications from veterans interested in being part of this program. The first successful applicant will have their franchise fee waived entirely, and all other qualified entrants will receive substantial savings on their fees.

In addition, for every veteran who opens a Signarama franchise, the company plans to donate $5,000 towards military initiatives, and is actively reviewing opportunities within the military community to make a difference.

"We're doing this for many reasons," Al Aroud says. "The main reason, quite honestly, is that Canada has been extremely supportive of our cause in Syria. We're from Syria (originally), and we feel like it's a way of showing veterans that we care for what they have done, and here's a way for us to help and give back if we can."

For anyone interested in becoming a firefighter in TO this could be the ticket.

Although, "Toronto Fire Services does not accept external transfers to any of the entry level firefighter positions", they do  accept internal transfers from Prevention to Operations.
You would maintain your seniority and pension, and not be competing for the precious few firefighter jobs available with civilians off the street.

( Sort of like doing an OT in the CAF ).

I was looking at that.   With over forty years experience, I thought that it would be nice to be paid for something I have been expending a fair sum of dollars on.   [:D

They're well compensated (important) and well resourced (even more important) service. Not a bad gig at all if you can get it.
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Saw this ( American ) article. It may, or may not, be of interest to ( current and former ) members seeking non-military employment,

1. Language
Problem: Swearing is Expected in the Military. Swearing Sets You Back in Many Civilian Fields

2. Following Orders
Problem: Enlisted Soldiers are Trained to Obey without Questioning

3. Reliance on Institutional Support
Problem: Active Service Members Don’t Provide for Themselves

4. Expectation of Respect from Civilians
Problem: Most Civilians Do Not Acknowledge Veterans’ Service

5. Treatment of Subordinates
Problem: Officers are Accustomed to Automatic Obedience

6. Reliance on Forced PT
Problem: Active Service Members Never Have to Schedule Their Exercise
