Types of opportunities for students

Work Study positions are part-time and offered from September to April subject to funding. Current students need to first apply to the Work Study program through Student Awards and Financial Aid (SAFA).

Once you’ve been allocated your total number of hours, visit Current Work Study Postings and click on LEGA to apply to the specific position. Pro tip: begin your application to SAFA early (late August-early September) as these positions are filled quickly.

 

Young Canada Works (YCW) positions are offered subject to funding by the Government of Canada.

1. YCW in Heritage Organizations - Summer positions for current students. Read more about the eligibility criteria for YCWHO summer positions.

2. Building Careers in Heritage - Internships for recent graduates. Read more about the eligibility criteria for YCW Internships.

Legacy Art Galleries occasionally works with volunteers based on the applicant’s skill set and interests. All volunteer opportunities are subject to staff availability to supervise the project.
