We provide co-op students with paid practical work experience in the water and wastewater industry as well as in our Corporate Office. Many of our co-op students end up becoming full-time employees who grow their careers at OCWA.
Operational co-op roles are posted on our Job Opportunities page, while other Co-op placements are posted at various educational institutions across Ontario. Check for co-op job postings with your school’s career centre and respective co-op office.
We hire students for summer positions every year in different areas such as water and wastewater, compliance, administration, asset management, human resources, finance, communications and more. We hire regular summer students and we also hire through our “Summer Experience Program."
