International Co-op Students
The following is meant to help guide current or incoming international co-op students through the process to be eligible to work in Canada, not to advise on such matters.
Co-op Work Permit
Immigration Canada states that international students must have a valid co-op work permit in order to complete co-op work terms even if your study permit grants you access to work in Canada. Without this document, we cannot confirm with a potential employer that you are legally able to complete your required co-op work hours. There is no fee required to secure a Co-op Work Permit.
For additional support regarding the application to and maintaining your co-op work permit, refer to the International Student Advising services.
Once you receive your co-op work permit, a copy will need to be shared with Co-operative Education. Please contact email@example.com for further instructions.
