When students are closely connected with employers in the hospitality industry, they are able to build valuable workplace contacts for future employment.  Therefore, the goal of this program is to integrate academic studies with work experience.  The Co-op Work Program requires students to complete a work co-op for a minimum of a month to a maximum of one year. Visa students need to apply to work legally in Canada.

  • The program consists of two components. The Academic Component requires students to complete nine courses in a classroom environment over nine months, as well as a Business Communication course. The Practicum Component is a maximum one-year paid or unpaid work placement which requires students to complete job interviews with hotels before they are placed. Afterwards, students return for another three months of study. The total duration of the program is 24 months.
