Capilano University is a teaching-focused university that offers a wide range of programs and services that enable students to succeed in their current studies and their chosen careers, as well as in their contribution as responsible citizens in a rapidly changing and diverse global community.

Co-op programs reinforce classroom learning by providing students with the chance to test their skills and knowledge in the workplace. Our main co-op program is focused on our Tourism Management Co-operative Education Diploma. In the classroom, co-op practitioners help students every step of the way in upgrading their resumes, improving their interview skills, and understanding the employment opportunities available.

Competitive wages mean students earn while they learn, making important industry contacts along the way. A Co-op Work Permit (COWP) is required for all international students. Visit the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) website to learn more.
