 IIAVC Internship Program

IIA Vancouver Chapter’s (IIAVC) Academic Relations committee partnered with ICBC and UBC Sauder School of Business to pilot an Internship Program in 2021. This program aims to provide students with internship opportunities through full-time and paid positions for a four-month term. ICBC has successfully recruited a third-year UBC student, Allison Merke, who started in September 2021. Congratulations, Allison!  To reward Allison, IIAVC will provide a one-year free IIA membership (US $50) immediately and will award a $500 scholarship to Allison upon her completion of the four-month internship term.

As Allison said, “I am hoping to gain practical experience in internal audit at one of Canada’s largest property and casualty insurers. The opportunity to work with knowledgeable professionals in the Risk Management and Corporate Audit Services Department will enhance my understanding of internal controls and internal audit procedures.” Special thanks to Ariko Greenfield, Tom Wong, and UBC Sauder School of Business for supporting this initiative and Karen Wang for organizing and coordinating.​
