Leadership/Activity Procedures & Forms


Practicum Requirements

Hello KPE Undergraduate students,

It has become a larger problem recently with students submitting forms for volunteer hours after those hours have long been completed.  This simply cannot continue from a liability perspective.  You have until Nov 15th to submit forms covering hours that have already been completed.  After that date, such forms will not be accepted.

I have asked for this cooperation in the past.  I have tried to be understanding, but the current management of these forms by an increasing number of students cannot continue given liability issues.    

There is no reason why these forms cannot be completed (Form 1 and any necessary Health and Safety forms) before the opportunity commences and very shortly after their completion (Form 2 and letter from the supervisor).  I understand that there can be delays in accessing a confirmation letter from a supervisor.  Please follow the directions that are clearly delineated on the KPE web page.  To those students who have managed this process as requested in the past, I express my appreciation.

Sincerely,

Stephen Wenn

Unpaid Work Placement Procedure


The Government of Ontario, through the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU), pays the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) for the cost of benefits provided to Student Trainees enrolled in an approved program at Laurier and participating in a compulsory unpaid work placements with employers who have WSIB coverage. If a student sustains a workplace injury, in a facility that is eligible for WSIB coverage, the student will receive WSIB coverage through the MTCU's firm number. Accident costs are not the responsibility of the Placement Employer.

MTCU also covers the cost of private insurance with ACE-INA for Student Trainees enrolled in an approved program at Laurier and participating in a compulsory unpaid work placements with employers which are not required to have compulsory WSIB coverage under the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act. If a student sustains a workplace injury, in a facility that is not eligible for WSIB coverage, the student will receive private insurance coverage provided by MTCU. Accident costs are not the responsibility of the Placement Employer.

The Government of Ontario provides such coverage to encourage the participation of employers in providing unpaid work placements for Student Trainees required as part of Ontario's publicly assisted postsecondary education and training programs.

Prior to the commencement of an unpaid work placement, students must complete a Student Declaration of Understanding, and submit it to their Laurier placement coordinator.

Also prior to the commencement of an unpaid work placement, placement employers must provide the student trainee with health and safety orientation training and must read and sign the Letter to Placement Employers.
