Considerations for Working Outside of Canada
The Co-operative Education Program formally integrates a student's academic studies with related out-of-classroom experiential learning practicum. The work terms can be local, national (within Canada) or international. It is important to connect with the co-op office at your home institution to see what possibilities exist. If you are seeking an international work term (outside of Canada), it is important to let the co-op office at your home institution know so that they can direct you to various resume, cover letter and interview and job search resources early (i.e. some employers can post as early as eight months prior to the work term start date). Also, there are various international co-op partnership programs that your college/university belong to. Check with your co-op coordinator to see which programs your college/university has a partnership with.
