Canada-Japan Co-op Program Webinar

The Canada-Japan Co-op Program (CJCP) (English) (日本語) provides participating Japanese employers with top caliber Canadian undergraduate and graduate students who can make valuable contributions to their organizations in Japan as well as to provide Canadian co-op students with high quality career-oriented work opportunities in Japan.

Begun in 1992, CJCP is one of the oldest and most successful international Co-operative Education programs in the world. We have seen over 1,200 students from across Canada in Arts, Business, Engineering, Forestry and Science —to support all aspects of a Japanese employer's hiring needs.

We are currently developing a non-STEM stream in the Program to give employers a wider range of students to recruit from and seeking new partners in the Arts, Culture and Tourism sectors in Japan as well as other sectors of the economy.

Please join the event to learn how Co-operative Education has worked in Japanese organizations over the past 30 years and to hear stories from our alumni and employers.
