The work placement is a paid work term over 4 months (minimum 10 weeks/400 hours).

Academic Requirements to Participate in Optional Work Placement

  • Enrolled as a full-time Domestic student.
  • Successful completion of all core courses in Semesters 1, 2, 3 and 4 as scheduled.

Advancing to the Optional Work Placement

When students secure a placement they are automatically advanced to a Work Placement course.

International Students

The Optional Work Placement program is only available to Domestic students at this time. International students have the opportunity to apply to summer jobs, including summer jobs related to their program of study, provided their Study Permit allows them to do so. See Studying and Working in Canada for further information.

Work Preparation

Participating students are required to complete a 4-week course prior to the work term to help them develop effective job search skills including resume preparation, job market research, networking and interviewing. Placements are not guaranteed, therefore, students are expected to actively network and search for their own placement.

The Work Placement Services Team provides a range of services to support student success, including coaching students throughout their job search and placement, and working with employers to identify placement opportunities.
