Student Work Abroad Program (SWAP)
Canada's largest international exchange program
The Federation’s Student Work Abroad Program (SWAP), Canada's largest international exchange program, provides students with the opportunity to combine employment and travel abroad. By living and working in another country, a SWAP participant has a greater opportunity to learn about the people, lifestyles, and cultures of the host country.
SWAP participants pay a registration fee (members of the Federation receive a 15% discount) and receive all necessary working papers, initial accommodation upon arrival, and other services. Most importantly, participants receive support from SWAP staff in Canada and abroad. Acting as a "safety net", the SWAP staff informs participants of the local job and accommodation market, and help participants with the transition to life in a foreign country.
