To be eligible for a public service job through this program, you need to meet these 3 requirements:
- you must be a full-time student registered in a post-secondary co-op/internship program that is on our list of validated institutions and programs
- your work term must be mandatory for graduation
- you must meet the minimum age required in the province/territory of work
This includes students with full-time status classified by their school as having physical or emotional disabilities, and some adult secondary school students. Learn more about whether you’re eligible.
Note: Preference will be given to Canadian citizens and permanent residents who meet the job requirements.
How to find a placement through the program
Contact your school’s co-op/internship program coordinator and ask about public service work opportunities.
Once you apply to a job placement, if you’re selected for further consideration, you may be invited to write an exam and to participate in an interview.
Students with disabilities: request support
If you have special assessment needs, we want to make sure that you have the support you need to fully demonstrate your abilities. If you’re contacted for a test or interview, ask the hiring manager for accommodation measures. This information will be kept confidential.
