Q: Will tuition fees be reduced for the Fall 2020 semester?

A: We can appreciate your concern with tuition costs. Any change to tuition fees is a University decision that cannot be determined by an individual department or program. SFU has negotiated the UPass fee waived for the summer term as well as refunded other student services fees to reduce costs for students.

In addition, the University and SFSS has provided additional funding to students experiencing hardship during these times through emergency and increased awards, as well as food security programs: 

SFU's Co-op programs are providing additional value to students through increased access and availability to advising/career counseling plus other supports such as flexibility with requirements for work term completion. Staff are also committed to working with all current employers and developing new opportunities to ensure that students have continued access to a large pool of quality co-op work terms for each of the faculty areas.

Please see below for links to Frequently Asked Questions by students that may provide additional helpful information: 

Q: Can I get a refund for my U-pass since I am now working from home and no longer using public transit?

A: Post-secondary institutions and student associations have worked with TransLink to temporarily suspend the U-Pass BC program as of May 1. For more details: https://new.translink.ca/rider-guide/coronavirus-precautions#u-pass-bc-program-suspended

STUDENTS INTERESTED IN JOINING CO-OP:

Q: When should I apply to Co-op?

A: You are welcome to apply any time prior to your faculty co-op program’s next intake deadline. Co-op program information can be found here: http://www.sfu.ca/coop/programs.html

Q: If I join the co-op program now, can I do my first co-op work term in Spring 2021? Will there be any co-op jobs for Spring 2021 or at least enough for all the SFU Co-op students who want a work term then?

A: The co-op program begins two semesters before you start your work term in order for you to complete the necessary preparatory workshops and one-on-one sessions with your Coordinator/Student Advisor.

For example, if you apply in Summer 2020, your work term may begin in January 2021. For international students awaiting their work permit, your work term may begin later, such as May 2021.

NOTES:

1. Please check on your specific co-op program’s webpage for the next intake date - most are around the beginning of June 2020. The Summer 2020 semester will be spent preparing you for applying to postings during the Fall 2020 semester (via online workshops and virtual meetings with co-op staff). We anticipate that postings will continue to be available and that by Fall 2020 we hope to be back to ‘normal’, although of course we need to see how the rest of the summer unfolds.

2. Students applying for a Co-op work permit from outside of Canada have in several instances had their application denied. Please contact the International Services for Students (ISS) office for more assistance on this.

Q: What if my CGPA after Spring 2020 term is lower than expected and I don’t meet the minimum CGPA requirements for the co-op program? Will you ignore Spring 2020 grades and just look at my other terms?

A: We will be as flexible as we can under the current circumstances and will consider admitting students who were not able to reach the CGPA requirements for their program. Students will be assessed on a case-by-case basis and we will do our best to support our students. Please contact your program office with your specific inquiry.

Q: How will I complete the required co-op workshops (resume, cover letter, etc.) - will they continue to be online for the Fall 2020 semester?

A: Yes, our workshops have all been moved online and your co-op program will provide you with the information on how to participate.

Q: I am planning on being out of the country for Summer 2020 - does that matter? Can I complete my co-op program application and new co-op student requirements online?

A: Yes, as long as you have access to a computer with a stable internet connection, you should be able to complete the application, and if accepted you will have access to the preparatory material (resume, cover letter and interview workshops, one-on-one meetings online).

Q: I am an international student and will need to apply for a co-op work permit, is it still even possible to get a permit?

A: Yes, once you have been accepted into your faculty’s co-op program, please apply for a co-op work permit in preparation for your work term. The Government of Canada is currently keeping a log of applications and will process them as soon as they are able. You will need a valid co-op work permit before you can have access to our job postings.

Q: Should I delay applying to the co-op program until later in my degree?

A: You are welcome to apply to co-op for our next intake (check your specific program for application dates) or wait until later - the choice is yours. We are still receiving postings from employers, students are still interviewing and still being hired. If you do apply to join the co-op program in Summer 2020, you’ll be applying to postings in Fall 2020 for a Spring 2021 work term, and we hope that we’ll see a return to regular levels of those postings on our system.

If you are an international student, please ensure you apply for a co-op work permit immediately after being accepted to the co-op program.

Q: How can I interact with co-op staff?

A: Co-op staff are still available via email, phone and/or online (e.g. Skype, Zoom etc.) for appointments and assistance. Please connect directly with your co-op program office to schedule an appointment.

CO-OP STUDENTS ON SUMMER & FALL 2020 WORK TERMS:

Q: How can I best protect myself from COVID-19?

A: There are a number of things you can do to maximize your chances of staying healthy: 

  • Social distancing - maintaining a safe distance (2 meters) from others is one of the best ways to minimize your chances of getting sick. 
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer (with more than 60% alcohol), especially after sneezing or coughing or if you have to go out into the public. 
  • Don’t touch your face with unwashed hands – any germs on your hands transfer easily to your eyes, nose and mouth. 
  • Sneeze/cough, etc. into your elbow or a tissue which you then throw away. 
  • Wear a mask and gloves or otherwise protect your hands from touching surfaces (don’t forget to sanitize your gloves if they aren’t disposable). 

Follow the World Health Organization’s guidelines for prevention https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/advice-for-public

DO THE FIVE

Help stop coronavirus:

  1. HANDS Wash them often
  2. ELBOW Cough into it
  3. FACE Don't touch it
  4. SPACE Keep safe distance
  5. HOME Stay if you can

The BC Centre for Disease Control also provides comprehensive information on prevention & risk at http://www.bccdc.ca/health-info/diseases-conditions/covid-19.

Q: What should I do if I feel sick?

A: See the information above. Your health is your priority, please take precautions to minimize your exposure and the exposure of others who may not be as resilient. If you feel sick, it is recommended that you stay home and advise your supervisor that you are ill. Many employers we’ve heard from are being extremely flexible for the safety of yourself and their staff – if you have concerns, of course contact the co-op program. Please also ensure that you advise your co-op program if you become ill and are unable to work.

Use the BC COVID-19 Assessment Tool to help determine if you need further assessment or testing for COVID-19. The BCCDC guidelines has additional information here.

Canada’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has provided steps to take if you are sick: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/if-you-are-sick/steps-when-sick.html

Q: What should I do if I'm uncomfortable being in my work environment?

A: With the provincial government’s Restart Plan, all employers in BC must prepare and follow a WorksafeBC Safety Plan. As part of this plan, all employees working on site, including Co-op students, must be advised and be aware of COVID-19 safety measures.

If you feel uncomfortable in your work environment, please have a conversation with your supervisor to see if you can work from remotely (i.e. from home), establish an alternate work schedule, or take time off. 

If you must be physically present, you can minimize your risk by following good hand hygiene, not touching your face and being vigilant about coughing or sneezing into a tissue or your elbow. You should also follow self-distancing recommendations. If you are concerned, please contact your Co-op Program.

More info from the BC Centre for Disease Control is available here:

http://covid-19.bccdc.ca/

Q: What if my job can't be done from home?

A: As above, we recommend you have a conversation with your supervisor to see what options exist. There are many ways to minimize your exposure, including self-distancing and good hygiene.

More info from the BC Centre for Disease Control is available here: http://covid-19.bccdc.ca/

Q: Will I be penalized by the co-op program if I am sick and can't work from home? What if my program has mandatory co-op?

A: No you will not be penalized as your health and safety is the number one priority. There will be no penalties from the Co-op Program if you cannot complete your work term due to COVID-19. 

If you are unable to work due to illness, please inform your employer and the Co-op Program. If your work term ends early due to COVID-19 there will be no penalties from the Co-op Program. Please contact us if you are in this situation. 

Students in a mandatory co-op program should check with their Co-op Coordinator if they have not yet received information on flexible requirements.  Students will not be penalized for non completion of a work term and will be given alternate options to fulfill graduation requirements.

Q: Will my co-op grade be negatively impacted by COVID-19?

A: Co-op students will not be negatively penalized for work term matters related to COVID-19. If a student's work term has been cancelled or ended early, or if a student needs to be self-isolated or quarantined and cannot fulfill the work term requirements, this will not negatively impact your co-op grade. Grading will be dependent upon submission of the work term report requirements as outlined by your program, and completion of employer and student evaluations. If you have questions please contact your Co-op Program.

Q: What do I do financially if I can't afford to take time off/my employer doesn't pay for sick time/my employer closes my workplace?

A: The Government of Canada is taking immediate, significant and decisive action to support Canadians and businesses facing hardship as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak through it’s COVID-19 Economic Response Plan. Details of funding for individuals can be found here: https://www.canada.ca/en/department-finance/economic-response-plan.html#individuals 

SFU & the SFSS are also supporting students with emergency funding, awards and support:

Q: What do I do if I want to end my work term early for health/safety reasons?

A: Please contact us before you elect to end your work term early. We understand your concerns and want to work with you and your employer. Students will not be penalized for work terms that are ended early as your health and safety is the number one priority. There will be no penalties from the co-op program due to COVID-19 or other health concerns.

Q: What if my employer has already ended my work term and/or has decided not to extend me?

A: Contact your co-op program immediately and provide them with the details. We recommend that all co-op students have a ‘back-up’ plan (i.e. register for courses, put yourself on waitlists), in the case that our current COVID-19 circumstances last longer than expected.

Please note that the SFU Co-op Program has sent information to Co-op employers to support remote work options.

Ultimately if you are feeling uncomfortable in your workplace, the decision to end your work term is yours, but please confer with your employer and Co-op Program before making a final decision. There will be no penalties from the Co-op Program due to the impact of COVID-19.

Q: I am a student working in the United States (U.S.) what do the border restrictions mean for me?

A: The Canadian government announced on March 18, 2020 that both the Canadian and U.S governments have agreed to temporarily restrict all non-essential travel across the Canada-U.S. border.  The Canadian government also indicated that exemptions will remain in place to ensure Canadians who are now in the United States are able to return home.

  • If you are a Canadian student working in the U.S. and have concerns please discuss with your employer about ending early, working remotely, and determining a return date to Canada.
  • If you are an international student working in the U.S. contact the SFU International Services for Students to discuss your situation and reach out to your consular representative in the U.S.

COVID-19 current border measures and requirements may be found here.

Note: if you elect to travel back to Canada from the US or elsewhere, you must ensure you quarantine for 14 days after your arrival. Learn more details here.

Q: What if I have a specific situation that I'm concerned about and I don't know what to do?

A: Please contact your Co-op Program or your Co-op Coordinator with any questions at any time.

Students will not be penalized for work terms that are ended early due to COVID-19, as your health and safety is our number one priority.

Q: How do I know if my workplace is safe?

A: Check in with your supervisor to talk about their Covid-19 Safety Plan. All BC employers need to have a Safety Plan in place due to Covid-19. You can find more information on the WorkSafeBC website. While on your Co-op Work Term, the working relationship is between you, the employee and your employer. Talk to your direct supervisor or Co-op Coordinator if you have any concerns or questions.

Q: What are my rights and responsibilities as a worker?

A: Everyone involved in the workplace, including you, as a worker, have rights and responsibilities. It is important to know what each stakeholder’s responsibilities are in the workplace. As a worker, you have 3 key rights: the right to know about workplace hazards; the right to participate in health and safety activities in the workplace; the right to refuse unsafe work*.

Some of your responsibilities include: to be alert to hazards, follow safe work procedures, follow the treatment advice of health care professionals if injured and never work under the influence of alcohol, drugs or other substances.

*NOTE: By law, employers are prohibited from penalizing workers for raising a health and safety concern.

Q: What are my supervisor’s responsibilities?

A: Co-op supervisors play a critical role in a co-op student’s transition to the workplace. Supervisors are directly responsible for ensuring the health and safety of all workers under their supervision. Supervisors should also be aware of all known hazards at the work site and appropriate WorkSafeBC guidelines and procedures. Be sure to discuss any questions or concerns with your direct supervisor.

Q: What are my employer’s responsibilities?

A: BC law states that a business be a safe and healthy place to work. Your employer has a responsibility to ensure their employees have a health and safety plan, providing necessary support / equipment and reporting any incidents or injuries to WorkSafeBC.

Q: My employer is based outside of BC and I am working from home remotely. What do I need to know about Worker’s Compensation Coverage?

A: Talk to your supervisor to make sure you have coverage. Even if you are working remotely, you still need Worker’s Compensation Coverage. If your supervisor doesn’t know, be sure to check in with your Co-op Coordinator to discuss and they can help you navigate the situation. Your Co-op Program Office will need confirmation of coverage.

Q: What if my employer has decided not to extend my Summer work term into the Fall semester, as I expected?

A: Contact your Co-op Program immediately and provide them with the details. We are also recommending that all Co-op students who have secured a fall work term to make a ‘back-up’ plan for the Fall semester (i.e. register for courses, put yourself on waitlists), in the case that our current COVID-19 circumstances last longer than anticipated.

Q: Can I work remotely on my co-op work term?

A: The SFU Co-op Program has provided information to employers to support remote work options with their Co-op students, including the Guidelines provided by WorkSafeBC. If this occurs, please advise the Co-op Program of your circumstances. If your employer is not able to accommodate remote work and they indicate that you must be physically present, you can minimize your risk by following good hand hygiene, not touching your face and being vigilant about coughing or sneezing into a tissue or your elbow. You should also follow social-distancing recommendations. 

More info from the BC Centre for Disease Control is available here: http://covid-19.bccdc.ca/

If your employer indicates that you cannot work remotely and you are uncomfortable with working in-person, contact your Co-op Program for assistance on your situation. We understand your concerns and want to work with you and your employer. 

It is also important to understand that students will not be penalized for work terms that are ended early due to COVID-19 as your health and safety is the number one priority. 

It is important that before you elect to end your work term early you contact your Co-op Program.

Q: What are co-op employers being told about health and safety guidelines in the case they want students to be available in person?

A: WorkSafeBC guidelines will be provided to any employer who prefers the co-op student to attend the workplace in person. You can see them here: https://www.worksafebc.com/en/about-us/covid-19-updates/covid-19-returning-safe-operation.

Q: How are Site Visits being conducted?

A: You are our top priority! Coordinators will continue to check in with you via email and phone, and will be contacting you to arrange a time for a Site Visit while you are on a work term, just as we normally would (albeit remotely!)

Q: What information should I know regarding health and safety before I start my work term?

A: When you start a brand new position, educate yourself on the risks and potential hazards of your new job. It is important to know what your rights and responsibilities are prior to the first day. Check out WorkSafeBC’s site for new and young workers and get informed about questions you can ask your new supervisor.

CO-OP STUDENTS WHO ARE SEEKING A FALL 2020 WORK TERM:

There are many co-op work term opportunities available for students for Fall 2020 and we are continually working with our existing, as well as new, employers to develop more opportunities for you.  Employers are aware that students are available and interested in a Fall work term and are continuing recruitment for their co-op jobs.

Q: I am interested in starting an International Work Term for the Fall 2020 semester. What are my options?

A: Due to ongoing global travel restrictions the University has indicated that all international activities are suspended until further notice, unless the student can work remotely for an international employer from Canada. All University international travel and activities restrictions are based on the SFU COVID-19 impact scale.

Q: How are interviews being conducted?

A: Interviews continue to primarily be through video conferencing (Zoom, Skype etc), however as businesses begin to re-open more are being scheduled in person. Your Co-op program will confirm the type and location of the interview that you’ve been invited to attend. They will also advise you of the in-person safety protocols required to attend an in-person interview.

If you have any concerns with attending an in-person interview, please contact your Co-op program to discuss and explore alternate options. We are here to support you and help you navigate through your concerns.

Q: What will I need to do for an in-person interview?

Your Co-op program will advise you of the safety protocols required by the organization to attend an in-person interview. We encourage you to discuss any concerns that you may have with your Co-op Coordinator.

Q: What if my program has mandatory co-op and my employer cancels my summer work term?

A: There will be no penalties from the Co-op Program due to COVID-19 or other illness. For students in a mandatory program, we are working with the university administration to determine options to accommodate students, including graduate students. 

Please contact your Co-op program if you have not yet received information.

Q: I'm supposed to be relocating to another city within Canada for my work term, what should I do?

A: Your employer should be able to provide you with information and support on relocation through their HR department. However, we recommend some of these suggested guidelines:

  • Review the provincial work safety guidelines for businesses
  • Check airline regulations and new policies so you are prepared for your flight
  • Discuss plans for work safety with your employer
  • Review rental agreements for accommodations you are considering for any COVID-19 related cancellation policies before signing a lease

Discuss any concerns or develop a plan with your Co-op Coordinator here: https://www.sfu.ca/coop/contact.html.

Q: Will I be penalized by the Co-op program if I can’t start my work term when expected (whether in or out of town)?

A: No. Your health and safety is our number one priority. There will be no penalties from the Co-op Program for COVID-19 related situations.

Q: Can I cancel my work term if I've already accepted a position?

A: Yes, if the cancellation is related to COVID-19, but please contact your Co-op Program first. The Co-op Program will connect with your employer, as there may be other options (later start date, working remotely, postponing to the Fall term).

Q: What if I want to stop looking for a work term?

A: You can elect to halt your seeking activities, but please contact your Co-op Program to discuss, as there may be other options (pausing your search for a few weeks, etc.).

Q: Should I register for courses as a back-up plan?

A: Yes, we recommend you consider a back-up plan, and register for courses or add yourself to wait lists, if needed.

Q: What if I have a specific situation that I'm concerned about and I don't know what to do?

A: Contact us https://www.sfu.ca/coop/contact.html as we are here to support you and guide you through your Co-op program.

Q: Can I still find my own work term?

A: Yes! Our Self-Directed Work Search (SDWS) option is still available to you. There are some temporary guidelines in place during the pandemic, including:

  • The ability to work remotely (ie from home)
  • More flexibility around start dates and part-time working arrangements
  • 280 completed work hours to reach the minimum requirement for your work term (vs 420) 

Contact your Co-op Program if you have an idea for a SDWS. You can also receive a $100 SFU Bookstore online credit if you are successful.

Q: Is the number of co-op postings down from the normal amount?

A: For the Summer semester, we did see a decline across all Co-op Programs, as employers determined their best way forward in light of the pandemic stay-in-place orders. For Fall, we are cautiously optimistic that many employers who have put projects and other work on hold will return to Co-op with remote work opportunities. We’ll know more as the Summer months progress.

Q: How do I know if my workplace is safe?

A: All BC employers are required to develop a COVID-19 Safety Plan that outlines the policies, guidelines, and procedures they have put in place to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. You may want to discuss this plan and what the workplace would look like in your job interview. If you are seeking a job outside of BC, you may want to discuss provincial health and safety guidelines with your Co-op Coordinator.

Q: What information should I know regarding health and safety before I start my work term?

A: When you start a brand new position, educate yourself on the risks and potential hazards of your new job. It is important to know what your rights and responsibilities are prior to the first day. Check out WorkSafeBC’s site for new and young workers and get informed about questions you can ask your new supervisor.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS AT SFU

Q: I am an international student who needs to submit biometrics to Service Canada / Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). Has the deadline been extended at this time?

A: Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has extended the biometrics deadline.
