Student jobs in Canada

Canadian Forest Service Aboriginal Student Employment Program

Students carry out a variety of interesting tasks and hold a range of responsibilities, for example:

  • Assisting in laying out field plots, marking and measuring trees, recording field plot and tree measurement and vegetation data, and collecting and preparing field samples for basic laboratory tests (e.g. insect collections, organic matter sampling). These activities are an opportunity to acquire new skills in plant identification, forest ecosystem classification and dendrochronology.
  • Conducting soil and water sampling, vegetation surveys, sample processing and weighing.
  • Maintaining and operating specialized field science equipment and learning about the safe handling of chemicals.
  • Understanding habitat utilization and cumulative risks for wood turtles, a forest dependent species at risk.
  • Developing integrated remotely sensed and ground-based indicators of sustainable forest management.
  • Undertaking economic and social analysis and reporting.

The CFS recruits Aboriginal students at the secondary and post-secondary levels (e.g. high school, college/CEGEP and university) who have applied to the Federal Student Work Experience Program (FSWEP). Only Aboriginal persons will be considered for the . When applying to the FSWEP program, candidates must self-identify as an Aboriginal person.

Aboriginal peoples are one of the four groups designated by the Employment Equity Act. To self-identify as an Aboriginal person in your FSWEP application, please follow these steps:

  1. Click on the "Employment Equity" section of your FSWEP application (under "Create/Maintain Profile").
  2. Confirm that you accept to complete the self-declaration form for Employment Equity (EE) groups, by clicking consent option #3 in the menu.
  3. Complete the form. First, indicate that you accept the "collection purpose" as being for "appointment purposes and statistics related to appointments and EE workforce representation" (collection purpose option #1). Next, make the appropriate selections with respect to: Gender (question 1), Aboriginal peoples (question 2), Members of visible minority groups (question 3), and Persons with disabilities (question 4).

The CFS expects to hire a maximum of 10 students to work between April 2014 and March 2015.

Students recruited by the CFS come from various fields of study related to sciences and the forest sector. We are looking for candidates who are studying in one or more of the following specializations:

Large financial disparity in my relationship

by apaganpoet

I work a 9-to-5 with a salary around $50k a year. He is a music producer who works from home when he's not touring the world (mostly America and Canada, but also Europe) and brings in less than half of what I do at this point. He picks up odd jobs here and there (i.e., lighting and sound for a theater company) to supplement his income.
We split all our shared expenses in half (rent, utilities, a credit card we share). I cover my personal bills (i.e., student loan) while he covers his car payment and insurance. I'll split the car expenses with him when I get my license and begin driving
