All Canadian Work Term data is reported in Canadian Dollars.

All hourly earnings data has been self-reported by students, and compiled by Co-operative and Experiential Education (CEE) for the 2018 calendar year.

Note: Student-reported earnings have not been validated by other sources, and that earnings cannot be compared to the 2018 report due to revised methodology.

Hourly earnings data does not include the value of alternative remuneration provided by employers. For example, the value of food, lodging and transportation reimbursements provided to some students have not been reported. In addition, hourly earnings data does not reflect earnings from potential overtime pay.
