The target audience is for any female-identifying students in their graduating year or students that may have graduated in the last year.

There are five spaces available, and students will receive paid summer employment, College Tuition & Ancillary fees paid for by Linamar, paid part-time employment throughout their College program (15 hrs/week), and then upon completion of their college program, students will be signed as Apprentices by Linamar Corporation with guaranteed full-time work. 

Next steps for interested students:

  2. If any female graduating students are interested in applying to the program, they will need to submit their updated resume to Linamar by Sunday Jan. 16th, 2022.
  3. Finally, students will then need to apply to one of the two Conestoga College programs through the OCAS (Ontario College Application Service) website, depending on their area of preference.
