What is the co-op program like at Maple Leaf Foods?

Our co-op program offers opportunities across many teams and business units – from Marketing to Information Technology, to Finance, to Food Safety and Quality Assurance (and many more!).
You’ll contribute to a team just like any other colleague. You’ll work on real projects, collaborate with team members and gain feedback along the way.

Here’s what we offer:

“Working at Maple Leaf Foods has brought me great insight into the world of IS and Supply Chain Planning. I am able to see and participate in the planning and carrying out of projects during my time here. I support my team by taking on project management activities as well as assisting in daily tasks using SAP software.”
