CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. —

RDÉE P.E.I. is launching a series of three short promotional videos to encourage Island employers to hire interns for the PERCÉ postsecondary internship program this summer.

The first entrepreneurial video has been launched which features Trout River Industries in Coleman and in French talks about the work the company does.

A second version of the same video offers English subtitles.

In early April, once the recruiting of 30 interns for the summer of 2019 is completed, efforts will be made to find each of them a place to work in their field of studies.

That’s when a second employer recruiting video will be launched, which will feature the seniors’ care facility operated by La Coopérative Le Chez-nous in Wellington.

An English subtitled version will also be launched at the same time.

The final entrepreneurial video, on The Bottle Houses in Cape Egmont, will be filmed and launched this summer when the tourist attraction’s flower gardens are in full bloom.

This time, two videos will be filmed: one in French and one in English.

As this video project was being developed, the RDÉE took advantage of the presence of RDÉE Canada’s national Working Group on Youth Economic Issues, in Charlottetown last fall, to film a fourth video, specifically on the work and mission of this national committee.

RDÉE PEI retained the services of videographer Jean Lavergne of Summerside to produce the series.

The new series of videos was made possible through a close collaboration with RDÉE Canada as well as with funding from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency and the Department of Workforce and Advanced Studies.
