Canada student opportunities

Every year we hire students into co-op, summer and internship work terms that range from 4 to 16 months. As part of our team, you’ll benefit from:

  • A learning environment which uses existing skills and builds new ones
  • Strong mentorship and guidance, both on-the-job and/or through a formal networking program
  • Training and ongoing development
  • Working in a high quality, collaborative environment with team members across the country (and in some cases, across the globe!)
  • Responsibility for your work and the impact it has on the business
  • A competitive student relocation program (when applicable)
  • Earned days off (1 Friday off per month)

What to expect

Our student work term program provides valuable, productive work that builds on your current skills and previous work experiences. During your term, you’ll meet our people, contribute to projects, and learn our processes. As you gain firsthand experience with us, you’ll have the chance to evaluate our full-time career opportunities while we learn more about you and your potential.

Our student opportunities are located across Canada in St. John’s, Halifax, Moncton and Calgary.
