The following three weeks I have interned at the Civil Society Program, a project of the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and the Canadian Embassy in Beijing, China where I worked to complete my Integrative Cultural Research Project (ICRP). The Civil Society Program is one of the projects of the Canada-China Cooperation Support Unit, which is comprised of CIDA and the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Cooperation. worked with Shannon Ellis, the Civil Society Program Coordinator, for most of my internship. The final day of the internship, I assisted Meaghan Duthie; the coordinator of another CIDA program called the Canada Fund. Originally, I planned to complete eighty hours of internship before the end of my ICRP. However, I was previously unaware that Ms. Ellis and Ms. Duthie are not members of the Canadian Civil Service. In fact, they are both on part-time contracts through CIDA. Therefore, they both work about ten days per month. This, along with the early arrival of Spring Festival, allowed me to complete only approximately fifty hours of internship.
