Recruit Tomorrow's Talent

Simon Fraser University's Co-operative Education Program (SFU Co-op) has been operating for over 40 years and is the first of its kind in Western Canada. We are leaders in online Co-op curriculum development, and are the first university to offer an online community for co-op student stories and educational content. SFU Co-op's mandate is not only to providing students with work integrated learning opportunities, but also to our 16,500+ employers across the globe; we prepare our students for the workplace so that our employers are able to recruit tomorrow's talent today.

A Co-op Job Should Be...

  • SUPERVISED

    As a Co-op supervisor, you are our co-educators. Your supervision of our student, and your regular, constructive feedback helps them grow professionally. Click here for supervisor requirements.
  • RELATED TO  STUDENT'S ACADEMIC PROGRAM
    / CAREER GOALS

    The nature of the work should be aligned with the student's academic program.
  • PAID

    Co-op work terms must be paid at a rate comparable to industry norms. Students are encouraged to consider the educational benefit of a position rather than salary; however, salary is a factor in students' work term considerations.
  • ADHERES TO EMPLOYMENT 
    STANDARDS

    SFU Co-op students are hired as employees of your organization. All employers operating within BC must adhere to the BC Employment Standards Act. SFU Co-op reserves the right to deny participation to any employer contravening this Act. Students complaints will be directed to the BC Ministry of Labour for resolution. Employers located outside BC must adhere to their regional and federal employment laws.
  • THE RIGHT TIMING

    420 hours minimum over a four month work term period. Students are available year round for 4, 8, or 12 month positions. Work terms begin each January, May, and September.
