For more information, please visit: FEDERAL STUDENT WORK EXPERIENCE PROGRAM (FSWEP)

The Federal Student Work Experience Program (FSWEP) is the primary vehicle through which federal organizations recruit and hire students. The Public Service Commission (PSC) is responsible for the administration of FSWEP on behalf of the Government of Canada.

FSWEP provides full-time students valuable, hands-on work experience and allows for a wealth of learning opportunities. Students have fair and equal access to job opportunities across Canada. Students are not required to have previous work experience to apply but must meet the program's eligibility criteria.

There are many types of exciting and challenging jobs offered to both secondary and post-secondary students. These opportunities encompass a wide range of duties and responsibilities related to providing service to Canadians, which could include field and lab work, information technology, office and administration, trades and working outdoors.

Featured employers on our website have provided samples of types of jobs available to students who have applied to the FSWEP campaign.

In addition, you may want to look at the FSWEP Departmental Programs offered by organizations with specific job opportunities. These programs are advertised individually, each indicating their own requirements; students must meet these requirements in order to be considered.

Your FSWEP application must be submitted online. Creating your FSWEP profile and submitting your application could take approximately 30 to 60 minutes.

NOTE: Each student hired through FSWEP must meet the security requirements of the position as a condition of employment, and therefore will be asked by the hiring organization to complete security related documents.

LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS: Various language requirements and/or profiles.

English essential, French essential or Bilingual (English and French) depending on the position to be filled.

Eligibility Criteria

The FSWEP targets full-time Canadian students who attend an educational institution recognized in Canada, either a secondary school, a CEGEP, a college, a technical institute or a university. This program also targets Canadian students who are studying abroad. While non-Canadians may apply to FSWEP, preference is given to Canadian citizens who meet the job requirements identified by the hiring organization.

To apply to FSWEP, you must:

1. be registered as a full-time secondary or post-secondary student in an accredited institution and currently be recognized as having "full-time student status" by that academic institution;

2. be returning to full-time studies for your next academic term; and

3. meet the minimum age requirement to work in the province or territory where the job is located.

Students who are in their final year of academic study and who are not intending to return to full-time studies are eligible to work part-time up until the time they graduate.

Departmental Program

Students interested in departmental programs can apply for one or more programs by selecting the "Departmental Programs" link at the same time they apply to the FSWEP.
