We are currently looking for highly motivated actuarial co-ops to join us in our Toronto and Kitchener-Waterloo offices for the May-August 2018 term.
The Opportunity
Actuarial Co-op students are given the opportunity to gain exposure to key actuarial disciplines including pricing, valuation, financial modeling, risk management, asset liability management and group actuarial.  As an Actuarial Co-op student, you will have the opportunity to work with a highly skilled team of actuaries and other professionals in a supportive learning environment, affording you the technical and business skills development you need in today's competitive environment.
The Actuarial Co-op program offers salary increases for exam progress, a mentorship program, and various networking opportunities such as Orientation Sessions, Lunch ‘n’ Learns, Co-op Presentations and Job Shadow Day.
