Work on and off campus

Our Work-Study Program allows you to work on campus during your semester. You can get work experience and schedule your work hours so they do not interfere with your courses.

After you have been a student for six months, you can also apply for an off-campus work permit.

Practical training

You can earn money and get practical work experience through our Co-operative Education Program (Co-op). With Co-op you can alternate paid work terms in your field of study with full-time study terms. Your work terms will be at Canadian companies, institutions, and government organizations.
