Co-op Students

Suncor’s co-op program provides challenging work experiences. Work terms of four, eight, 12 or 16 months build on classroom studies and create opportunities for personal and professional growth and development. Better yet, many of our co-op students go on to become permanent employees at Suncor after they graduate.

How to apply

Initial contact begins with Suncor posting job opportunities on our website and at campus career centres; Suncor also participates in campus career fairs or invites students to attend information sessions.

Once you accept an offer, Suncor will work with you to help make the transition. If you need to move to your work site, we’ll make it easy by providing assistance with travel and relocation expenses, as well as either referring you to or providing short-term housing options (depending on the location). We’ll also connect you with other interns or co-op students who are already in the picture.
