What changes have been made to ensure Covid Safety during the Recruitment Cycle? 

  • We will continue to monitor and follow the recommendations of Health Canada and the University of Toronto’s COVID-19 response plan and notify students of updates on how the recruitment process will proceed into fall and winter. 
  • The co-op recruitment process for the 2022- 2023 will continue to operate remotely. Students will upload their application documents and apply to roles online via the system on portal or company website/email, as usual. 
  • We are encouraging our employer partners to continue to conduct and complete the interview process virtually (web conferencing, phone call, skype, etc.) until further notice so that students are not required to travel for an interview. 
  • If a student has any questions regarding job postings, resume/cover letter support, interview process and preparation, please email us at: 


We look forward to welcoming you into the program!
