We are launching two new co-op programs!

In order to continue to build a talent pipeline in strategic areas of our business, we are launching two new co-op programs. Our first program (2018) targets students in health science disciplines to join our Group Life and Disability business. The second program (2019) targets students studying data analytics to work on dynamic data science projects in our Individual Insurance and Wealth line of business. We will provide more information about these programs at our campus info sessions and when we post the roles through your co-op career centre.

How do I apply?

Please note that the co-op roles are available to students in an official co-op program. All roles will be posted through your co-op career centre each semester.
