Thank you to everyone that applied to Ocean Bridge Direct Action! We're currently in the process of reviewing your applications and lining up placements with marine and aquatic stewardship organizations.
Due to the changing circumstances around COVID-19, we are matching accepted applicants to Direct Action placements on a case-by-case basis, as placements become available and fieldwork opportunities open up. Many rural and remote communities, where we expect to host most of our placements, are still working with physical distancing and restricted access to visitors. We will take all necessary precautions and work with host partners to minimize risk and ensure the safety of participants and host communities in the process of organizing Direct Action placements.
If you submitted an application, you will receive confirmation from us that we have received and reviewed your application and will contact you for an interview. After the interview rounds, we will do our best to notify you at least a month before the start of a placement.
If you are not selected for a summer placement by July 1st, we will check back in with you at the end July about your availability for fall and winter placements. Please update us on your availability when we contact you for future placements.
There is a two-stage process for program entry for candidates.
1) Interview with staff and addition to an approved candidate list.
2) Match with a suitable placement between June 2021 - March 2022, based on your availability.
These two stages will occur within a flexible timeline in the coming months, as we work with our partner organizations to establish placements in marine and aquatic conservation across Canada.
Thank you for your patience as we work within these unprecedented times to organize impactful experiences across Canada!
