Community Practicum

Reflecting our commitment to experiential education and students' development of the competencies and skills that connect theory with the workplace and community engagement, our degree programs include opportunities for students to participate in community practicum.

By participating in appropriate activities designed by community organizations, students gain insights into the kinds of learning and advocacy that contribute to the well-being of our society.

Placement Requirements

With adherence to provincial legislation, all students who are working with individuals in the vulnerable sector (e.g., children, youth, seniors) must have a completed, cleared, original copy of their Criminal Record Check with Vulnerable Sector Screening before entering their placement.

This document must be presented to the placement supervisor as required by each individual organization, either in advance of the placement or on the first day (specific to each organization's policies/procedures).

Students must confirm this process and complete requirements before they are welcome into a placement.
