FPAC announces winners of the 2023 Green Dream internship program

July 12, 2023  By Forest Products Association of Canada

It will be a summer to remember for 15 students who have been announced as winners of Forest Products Association of Canada’s (FPAC) 2023 Green Dream Internship Program.

The national initiative was launched in 2013 and showcases the experiences and perspectives of students who will be working in the forest sector over a six-week period – who are also receiving a $1,000 scholarship to further their education.

Throughout the summer, each of the Green Dream Interns will develop social media content ranging from blogs and vlogs, to TikToks and Instagram stories, creating content of their choice. Some of the suggestions provided by FPAC include showcasing what they like best about their summer job in forestry, interviewing colleagues, and a ‘day in the life’ style video.


“The Green Dream Internship Program profiles the experiences of young people working in the forest sector and allows them to share their stories in a unique way,” said FPAC president and CEO Derek Nighbor. “Interns who participate in the program have an opportunity to provide a first-hand look at our sector, our commitment to sustainable forest management and innovation, and the work we do to support hundreds of communities across the country.”
