Student Resources

Investing in the youth of our communities is the key to a successful future. We offer paid opportunities to help students develop their professional skill set, along with a variety of scholarships.

We offer supports to students and new working professionals through a variety of programs:

  • Scholarships

    Our scholarships are designed to meet the needs of students from our local communities. We offer scholarships for students in local high schools, Portage College and the University of Alberta.

  • Aboriginal Student Scholarships

    We offer scholarships for Aboriginal students attending post-secondary institutes. These scholarships range from $1,500 to full-tuition.

  • Summer Student Program

    Each year, we employ post-secondary students between May and August. Students positions within our operations help them gain the knowledge and experience they need to be successful in their chosen field. Our team members foster a supportive learning environment where our students can grow their skills and contribute to the Al-Pac team.

    Summer student positions are available on our Current Opportunities page in January.

  • Forestry Student Positions

    These positions are designed for students enrolled in a recognized post-secondary forestry or environmental sciences program. The program provides students with the opportunity to work with professionals in their field of study and gain industry experience. We offer positions working in silviculture, fisheries, environmental sciences and woodlands planning and operations.

    Forestry student positions are available on our Current Opportunities page in September.

  • Registered Apprenticeship Program

    We are a partner of the Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP). This program allows students to learn side by side with a trades professional and provides them with experience in their field of interest. Students can complete the program while attending high school.
