If you are interested in our co-op or summer student opportunities be sure to check out our job board for any current openings  or join our job alert mailing list.

Forestry Summer Students

We begin our recruitment of forestry summer students in October of each year for the following years’ summer. Our job postings outline the different areas of work (silviculture, planning, and operations) and all of the potential locations available for summer work.  Our forestry recruitment team visits a number of  universities, colleges and technical institutes to conduct interviews for candidates in late October and early November. 

Engineering Co-ops

Engineering co-op terms occur throughout the year and in all areas of engineering.  

Other Co-op terms and Internships

West Fraser has established programs for forestry and engineering students, however each year the Company hires students in internship and co-op roles outside of these two areas. Available student co-op and internship opportunities are posted when available on the West Fraser job board. We also highlight new opportunities on your university, college and technical institution student employment web pages.
