What is the ECHO Program?

The Environmental and Cultural Hiring Opportunity (ECHO) provides non-profit organizations, community groups and municipalities an opportunity to apply for up to two students, on a project focusing on environmental or cultural heritage conservation.

ECHO allows for meaningful, paid employment opportunities for students, while supporting important cultural and environmental initiatives in communities throughout the province.

The deadline for communities and groups to apply to host an ECHO student was January 26th, 2018. This process is now closed and applicants will be notified soon. For application details, click here to open the 2018 ECHO Project Application form and visit the ECHO Application Guide.
