We would like to announce the opening of proposals for the Work Learn Programfor Summer 2018 (May 1 – August 31, 2018)! Proposals will be accepted starting January 2 until January 19, 2018
Working on campus provides students with unique opportunities to explore different work environments, develop professional skills for the future, gain practical experience that complements classroom learning, and build strong connections with professionals and practitioners within the UBC community. Your commitment to hiring students helps them to achieve these experiential learning outcomes while simultaneously allowing them to contribute to the work of your unit or department.
If you are considering hiring a student for the summer to work in your lab, unit, or department, we encourage you to submit a proposal.We have developed a series of questions within a Submission Guide; these are the questions you will need to address when submitting your proposal on the CareersOnline submission form. You can also download a step-by-step guide on how to submit your proposal.

The Canada Summer Jobs 2018 Program provides funding for not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers (including most UBC faculties and departments) and private small businesses with 50 or fewer employees to create summer jobs for full-time students.
Canada Summer Jobs provides young people aged 15 to 30 years the opportunity to gain meaningful work and life experience while supporting community-based initiatives.
The wage subsidy is calculated based on a percentage of BC’s minimum hourly wage (up to 50% for public and private sector employers and up to 100% for not-for-profit employers).
Jobs must be full-time (30 to 40 hours per week) and 6 to 16 consecutive weeks in duration.
