Applications for Summer 2018 will be accepted from Feb. 5th - March 9th, 2018

Purpose and Scope

The Summer Work Study Program is designed to give OSAP students the opportunity to work full time at King's University College between academic years, while gaining valuable work experience. Students will work 7.5 hours per day, during which they will receive a half hour unpaid lunch and 2 paid 15 minute breaks. Most students choose to take these together to give themselves an hour lunch, which can be discussed with your supervisor. The student will work 35 hours per week at a pay rate of $14.56/hour which includes 4% vacation pay. 

Students are entitled to a 30 minute unpaid break when working more than 5 hours, per the Employee Standards Act.
