The Student Employment Experience Development (SEED) program provides a variety of employment opportunities for post-secondary students during the summer months. Jobs that are eligible for approval are within First Nations communities, municipalities, non-profit organizations and the private sector. The aim of the program is to enhance students' employment prospects upon completion of their studies, while enabling them to finance the continuation of their education.


A participant must be:
• a resident of New Brunswick or a First Nation community in New Brunswick;
• eligible to work in Canada;
• a student in the current academic year; and
• attending a full-time post-secondary institution in the fall.

How to Apply:

Selected students will receive information by email on how to proceed to connect with eligible employers. If not selected, they will be added to a waiting list.
