Canada-Japan Co-op Program Application Form

Due to the global pandemic, the Program paused its activities in March 2020, but hopes to relaunch in 2023. We are planning for our relaunch to include 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 across Canada.

Please continue to watch this site for updates and if you have questions, please reach out to Yuko Nemoto, Program Coordinator at

NOTE: new student applications are not processed at this moment.



Once the regular hiring cycles resume, please review the Student Checklist first to see your eligibility before completing the 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) pay $130 application fee, and 3) have a language assessment with CJCP staff. Then, students will have access to job postings; and 4) apply to jobs by the closing date. For more details about the program, please review the Student Information Guide.

Please be advised all job postings are available and closed 6-8 months prior to the start date because due to visa processing which may take up to 2-3 months in Japan.
