My experience at the Agri-Food research center in Lethbridge includes six co-op semesters, and I found it an excellent learning and work environment. The types of student positions are quite variable.

excellent working environment for research. It is a scientific research laboratory where research is being conducted mostly related to the dairy cattle.

Research Assistant (Ancien employé) - Guelph, ON
I worked as a part-time student research assistant on a 4-month FSWEP contract. I worked 15 hours/week and the PI I was working under was very generous about me keeping my schedule flexible, especially when exam season rolled around. The lab environment was always collaborative and exciting, and sometimes a little stressful when managing several experiments simultaneously. On special occasions such as the Chinese New Year, the facility staff put on a special lunch celebration for all employees to enjoy and learn more about the culture. These special lunches really helped maintain the work-life balance, as sometimes staying late at work was inevitable due to the experiment for the day. Overall, my position at AAFC has been the most valuable work and research opportunity I have experienced thus far. I would highly recommend working here!

AAFC is face paced and expects a lot from the students, but it is rewarding work that offers a lot to learn. The pay is good and the work environment is good. However the Pheonix pay system is miserable. I was not paid the first month, was never paid the correct hourly wage, and I still haven't been paid my missing wages 3 years later.
Points positifs
Good cafeteria
Points négatifs
Long hours, weekend work, never paid right.
