Internships at Haliburton Forest

Diversity is our middle name here at Haliburton Forest. Whether it is in the spread and scope of our operations, the variety of programs and activities we offer, our international visitors or even our staff!

You too can be a part of our diverse team through our Internship Program. Here at Haliburton Forest, we offer two unique internship opportunities in the fields of Outdoor Education and Forestry.

Our internships are designed to provide participants with experiences and skills in fields that can be otherwise difficult to access. Participation in all aspects of Haliburton Forest’s operations is an integral part of these programs and depending on the season, your experience will vary.

These programs are offered in 4-6-month periods, starting in either January, April or September, with flexible start and finish dates. Accommodations are provided, a weekly stipend, as well as vehicle use for trips into town.
