Student Placements

IWOO is committed to providing meaningful learning opportunities to students enrolled in a wide range of programs, particularly in the field of social work. Past students have consistently given high ratings to our placements and say they would recommend it to other students.

This application process is not for students who wish to volunteer on their own time, or for students looking for paid work. For jobs/volunteering opportunities check our volunteers and/or jobs sections. Please see the List of Academic Programs for examples of student placements that we have hosted in the past. Unless otherwise specified, all placements are unpaid.

Student Eligibility requirements:

  • The student must be enrolled in a college or university program that requires them to complete a certain number of hours in their field of study in order to graduate.
  • The student’s academic institution must be registered and in good standing with the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges, and Universities or their appropriate regional governing body.
  • For those seeking education in a regulated field, the student’s degree or diploma program must be recognized by an appropriate regulatory body. Recognition can be through program accreditation, where it is a standard in the field (e.g. Social Work, Office Work).

If you are not sure whether you are eligible or have any specific questions about the Student Placement program, please contact the Student Placement Coordinator by e-mail at
