Optional Co-op (Paid Work Experience) Program
The advanced paralegal program is offered with a optional co-op component and without. The co-op is a 24-week paid work experience program. It is a requirement of graduation from the paralegal studies for those taking it, and benefits all students (domestic and international). This work-study program is designed to seamlessly walk students from classroom experience to the real and invaluable world of work.
The college collaborates with a number of employers in the public and private sectors in providing co-op opportunities to its students. International students must obtain a work permit from the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) and International Experience Canada before undertaking the co-op experience. The College will assist by providing students with the required institutional documents, as long as they are in a satisfactory academic standing at the time of co-op.
