Internships have been an integral part of the ITHQ’s academic approach for over 40 years, and are an essential complement to the in-class training students receive.
All ITHQ programs use a work-study format including internships/co-ops with companies in Québec, elsewhere in Canada or abroad. Most are paid positions (admissible for tax credits in Québec), involving a minimum of 390 hours, depending on the program.
All internships/co-ops are evaluated by both the supervisor of the host company and by the ITHQ Internships Department staff. Students are free to choose the company where they will undertake this practical training, but they must respect the mandates assigned to them.
Are you interested in hiring one or more ITHQ students (interns) at your company, and benefitting from the Québec government’s Tax Credits for Practicums in the Workplace *?

In the last semester of their academic program, most ITHQ students undergo a final internship directly related to their training during which they can apply and integrate the knowledge acquired over the course of their studies.
These internships last from 3 to 10 weeks, depending on the program. They are typically held from Monday to Friday, but can also be tailored to the needs of the hosting company and the student’s schedule (e.g. including evenings and weekends). Throughout the internship, students are supervised by the ITHQ professors in charge of their evaluation
During their working hours, the unpaid interns are covered by an ITHQ insurance plan (CSST and third-party liability).
The following ITHQ academic programs include a final internship:
*Internship during the fall or winter semester
