Remuneration

How is remuneration defined for accreditation?

While remuneration may not always be a wage, most students should be paid an hourly or weekly rate of at least minimum wage during their work terms. Room and board, a stipend, an award or a scholarship may be alternative forms of payment, particularly for an international work term. Volunteer work terms are considered only on an exceptional basis (rather than routinely approved) and must be treated the same as paid positions and meet all other criteria.
