Matched in the first interview cycle? The deadline to submit your two-part online application to our visa sponsors is March 14, 2019

The International Employment Specialist is available to answer your visa application questions.

Firm deadlines for applying for a work permit through USA Visa sponsors

  • For international students (travelling on a non-Canadian passport)
    • Submit your application to the sponsor by 4:00 p.m. on April 26, 2019.
  • For Canadian students
    • Submit your application to the sponsor by 4:00 p.m. on May 3, 2019.

If you miss the deadlines

  • You will have to make other arrangements or plan this opportunity for your next scheduled work term.
  • If you miss the above deadlines, the process and your start date will be delayed, possibly affecting the validation of a co-op credit.  In some cases, obtaining a visa is no longer permitted.
  • If this happens, contact your student advisor (or career advisor if you had not had a work term).
