Career Centre Services
Attention students and upcoming graduates: Career Centre services continue to be offered following the end of the Winter 2018 semester exam period. We understand that the month of April is very busy for students, therefore we feel it is important for students to know that the Career Centre continues to offer career counselling, career talks, resume and LinkedIn critiques during the month of May. Check out the Student Experience Portal to see appointment availabilities in May, giving students additional opportunities to utilize Career Centre services in preparation for your summer work search, or if you are graduating, starting your career! New this year, we will have appointments available during the summer, too. In addition, the Student and Alumni Job Board is also accessible through the Student Experience Portal, which is being continuously updated with new job opportunities.

Wage subsidy funding can give new graduates an advantage that employers would benefit from, while providing new graduates with related work experience. Some funding programs available in Canada include: e-Talent Canada Ontario Career Connect, Biotalent Opportunities Fund Wage Subsidy and Green Focus, and Eco Canada.
