About this event

Mitacs is a national not-for-profit agency that supports and funds industry and academia collaborations through student placements. In this info session, you’ll learn how their grant programs enable you to host bright student interns who are supervised by Emily Carr University of Art + Design (ECU) faculty with expertise to solve your challenges.

ECU is interested in piloting a program for students, initially starting with 12 Mitacs internships starting in the late spring of 2022 (upon completion of the academic year). This would draw from students who are in ECU's Bachelor of Arts program and specialize in animation and VFX.
