General information

The volunteer assignment begins after the student has completed the required language studies at the CEA. The duration of the volunteer assignment cannot exceed the length of the language course. For example, a student who takes a 4week course may only take a maximum 4-week volunteer assignment. A student who studies for 8 weeks can take a maximum 8-week assignment. The volunteer assignment can be shorter than the language studies (minimum 4 weeks). The Maximum length for unpaid assignment is 12 weeks.

In Toronto, Co-Op students will be placed in  an English work assignment. The minimum language level required for the placement is upper-intermediate or advanced English.

In Montreal, Co-Op students have the unique opportunity to undertake a bilingual work assignment. Both languages are used in the workplace. The official language of the province of Quebec is French although Montreal is the centre of English business for the province. CEA Co-Op students are required to have upper-intermediate French skills for their placement. .Intermediate ability in English is also required. A stronger ability in English will enhance a student’s opportunities to find a suitable assignment.
