Employment Opportunities

Graduates are well positioned to work in public sector agencies, ministries, corporations, and organizations that have a significant level of interaction with Indigenous communities and organizations, including the Ontario Ministries of Northern Development and Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry, Community and Social Services, Economic Development and Growth, Health and Long-Term Care, Environment and Climate Change, and Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation.

For employment within the private sector, graduates have employment opportunities with resource-based companies in mining, forestry, energy, transportation, construction, environmental, and corporate social responsibility.

Employment opportunities within Indigenous communities and organizations are in areas of socio-economic development, education, health, social services, and band management.

Work Internships

Graduates may have an opportunity to complete a 6-9 month work internship within a provincial government ministry or other organization. Application information for an internship is available from respective ministries, and can be facilitated by the College, when possible.

The purpose of the internships is to provide graduates with a practical opportunity to work within community and government organizations, and apply their IGPA knowledge and skills accordingly, as well as to gain valuable work skills, meet ministry and corporate contacts, and also share their own experiences and expertise.
