How to Participate
Participating companies are expected to provide a job description, sign an agreement, supervise each student, and submit mid-term and final evaluation forms. To ensure capacity to supervise students and provide them with valuable exposure to the Canadian work environment, companies who have been established for 3 years with at least 3 employees are preferred, however companies may provide rationale for exceptions. To express interest, please submit the interest form and we will contact you each semester about how you can connect with UCW Practicum students.
