Co-operative (Co-op) Education programs give students the opportunity to use what they've learned in the classroom during a paid work period. Co-op programs may increase the length of your graduate degree by up to 12 months, but you'll use this time to gain work experience that will put you ahead. Co-op graduates traditionally find permanent employment faster and receive a higher salary than non-co-op graduates.
Co-op is available to graduate students in most program areas.

The requirements for a Co-op program are:
Students participating in a co-op program must meet the eligibility criteria as outlined below:
be enrolled on a full-time basis.
Students must be 18 years of age or over.
Students must obtain a Work/Study Visa from CIC.
have at least a pass in all required courses prior to job confirmation.
have a program cumulative grade point in good standing.
be either enrolled in, or have successfully completed CC-280.
According to CIC Foreign Workers Manual, employment should be an essential and integral part of your course of study.

Students who do not meet the eligibility criteria are considered "conditional" students.
Conditional students are encouraged to utilize all services available through Canadian College to attain eligibility.
The Co-op department will not forward the resumes of conditional students to employers when there are sufficient eligible applicants still seeking co-op positions.
Conditional students are encouraged to secure positions on their own.
Students with unusual circumstances must have the program Career Service Manager approval for co-op eligibility.

Confirmation of eligibility must be made with the Career Services Coordinator
