Schedule and Wage Data

Conestoga collects data on hourly wages of co-operative education students. The wage range figures in the table below are not established by the Co-op & Career Services Office but represent a compilation of recent earnings for co-op students.

Note that the current minimum wage in Ontario is $14/hr.

Our experience has been that employers increase wages as skills increase, particularly when employing students for subsequent work terms (II, III and IV). The Co-op & Career Services Office can provide assistance to employers in establishing appropriate wage rates.
