What is the eligibility criteria for Co-op programs for international students in Canada? Will the university or college place the students in co-ops? kindly provide some placement information about the same.

The Eligibility criteria for international students 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

The college tries to ensure that:
each work placement is developed and/or approved by the College as a suitable learning and training environment.
the co-op student's progress on the job is monitored by the College.
the co-op student's performance on the job is supervised and evaluated by the student's Career Services Manager.
the total co-operative education work experience cannot be more than 50% of total program hours.

However, Canadian College does not unconditionally guarantee a work placement to students who enroll in programs using co-operative education. Canadian College will develop options for students when placements are unavailable in order to assist the students to complete the program.

Once a student has been offered and accepts a co-op job, he/she is withdrawn from the job-seeking status. Students not selected for an interview or not selected for the position after an interview will remain in the job seeking status.
