Thank you for your interest in the Canada-Japan Co-op Program!

If you are not sure about your eligibility, please reach out to Yuko Nemoto, Program Coordinator at email@example.com before completing the online application form.
We have been working diligently to generate additional opportunities for students in the Social Sciences, Humanities, Tourism, and Business disciplines, in addition to those from the STEM disciplines, making it more accessible to a wider range of co-op students.
Please note co-op opportunities vary each term depending on employers’ needs.
Students are advised to read Prospective Student Info Guide 2 – Online Application Form before filling out the online application form.
It takes approximately 30-40 minutes to complete the online application form.
After completing the online application form, students will receive an email with application steps:
1) schedule an application interview with the liaison officer at their home institution;
2) schedule a meeting (via zoom/in-person) with CJCP staff to go over the online application and conduct a language assessment;
3) have access to job postings; and
4) apply to jobs by the closing date
Please be advised CJCP hiring cycles starts and job postings are closed 6-8 months prior to the start date due to visa processing which may take up to 2-3 months in Japan.
