Unpaid interns dropped from Rogers-owned magazines

At least two Rogers-owned publications have dropped their internship programs, the Star has learned.
In a pre-emptive move, interns at Flare and Chatelaine who were either unpaid or receiving a $400 monthly honorarium were let go Tuesday.
The Ministry of Labour said it has received no complaints and issued no compliance notices for those magazines or others owned by Rogers Communications Inc., one of Canada’s largest corporations.
“Moving forward, we want all our internships to be associated with an educational institution or to be paid,” Rogers spokeswoman Louise Leger said in an emailed statement to the Star.
As for whether paid internships will be created, the company was “evaluating” its program, she said.
