Terms and conditions according to the institution
The Work/Study Program is co-funded in equal parts by the Ministère and the participating educational institution. Program funding is renewed on a yearly basis.
The Program is administered by the educational institution, which selects the jobs to be offered and sets pay scales. Each institution also determines the period during which it accepts applications.
In addition to the specific requirements set by each educational institution, you must meet the following eligibility requirements to qualify for the Work/Study Program:
- You must be a Canadian citizen, a permanent resident, a refugee or a protected person within the meaning of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.
- You must be studying full-time during the fall and winter study periods. If you are studying at the college level during the summer study period, you must be enrolled in at least two courses or for 90 course hours. If you are studying at the undergraduate, graduate or doctorate level during the summer study period, you must be enrolled in courses worth at least six credits or have been enrolled full-time in the previous winter study period and be considered admitted full-time for the following fall study period.
- You must have applied for financial assistance under the Loans and Bursaries Program for the current award year. This requirement does not apply if you are no longer eligible under the Loans and Bursaries Program because you have reached the debt limit for your particular program or because you have received assistance for the maximum number of months of eligibility allowed.
For additional information on the Work/Study Program, contact the financial assistance office at your educational institution.
