When is the work study program available?
The program mirrors the academic schedule start and end dates of each semester. You will need to apply every year for consideration.
What conditions apply?
All students who maintain a minimum course load of 14 credits per semester may be considered. Students with disabilities may, upon the recommendation of the Director of Counselling and Learning Support Services, qualify for the program with a lower credit course load. All students must hold a valid social insurance number.
The rate of pay for the work-study program is $10.25 an hour. The minimum number of hours which can be worked in the program is three hours a week, for fourteen weeks a semester (thirteen weeks of classes and one examination week). The maximum number of hours a week is eight. Students may opt to work more hours in one semester than another, as long as the minimum of three hours per week is met. In exceptional circumstances students may be permitted to participate in the program for only one semester of the academic year. The work involved will typically be clerical or janitorial. Satisfactory performance of the work assigned is essential: failure to discharge one’s duties may result in the termination of participation in the program.
