STEP 3: Submit the Application Form

Once you’ve reviewed the academic requirements and attended the mandatory Internship Information Session, you can submit the application form.

When is the best time to apply for the Internship Program?

Applications will be processed within 5 business days of submission. Apply as early in the term as possible as most employers post positions early to attract the top candidates.

Based on employer hiring timelines, students are encouraged to apply within the following timelines:

Intended Internship Start Date Application Window
Summer (May) January - February
Fall (September) May- June
Winter (January) September - October

Note: International students may experience long wait times for work permits. We encourage all international students to apply two terms in advance.
