Career Bridge Internship Program

Career Bridge internships are paid positions that last 4, 6, 9 or 12 months for job-ready immigrants that are legally able to work in Canada.

Internships arranged through the Career Bridge program provide a crucial bridge between the international and Canadian workplace. Career Bridge eliminates significant employment barriers often faced by qualified, experienced professionals who are eager and ready to resume their careers in Canada.

Career Bridge is operated by the Career Edge Organization, a not-for-profit social enterprise that has managed over 8,000 paid internships across Canada since 1996.

CIBC views Career Bridge as a great source of well qualified candidates who often have the opportunity to join the CIBC family for permanent roles once they complete their internships.
