Remuneration of co-op students


ÉTS co-op students are remunerated for the duties that they perform. The determination of salary and benefits is left to the discretion of the employer, subject to the minimal requirements of the Act respecting Labour Standards. For example, co-op students are entitled to paid statutory holidays and 4% vacation pay at the end of the co-op work-term.
