Paid Practicum Placements

Student receives wages from their placement employer and are treated as any other worker employed by the placement employer. Student has an employee contract with their employer that outlines the responsibilities of the employer and the student/employee. The student also requires a practicum agreement that outlines practicum site/supervisor and practicum student responsibilities in addition to the employer/employee contract. 

Unpaid Practicum Placements

Students receive no funds from their placement employers (may be receiving stipends, honorariums or expense reimbursements). A practicum agreement must be in place outlining practicum student and practicum site/supervisor responsibilities.
