The Federation’s Student Work Abroad Program (SWAP), Canada's largest international exchange program, provides students with the opportunity to combine employment and travel abroad. By living and working in another country, a SWAP participant has a greater opportunity to learn about the people, lifestyles, and cultures of the host country.
SWAP participants pay a registration fee (members of the Federation receive a 15% discount) and receive all necessary working papers, initial accommodation upon arrival, and other services. Most importantly, participants receive support from SWAP staff in Canada and abroad. Acting as a "safety net", the SWAP staff informs participants of the local job and accommodation market, and help participants with the transition to life in a foreign country.
