Remuneration varies with each FWT position. Some are volunteer, some pay, and some offer housing in lieu of salary.
A student should not expect to make or save money during FWT, but rather to cover basic living expenses and to learn as much as possible about the world of work. Some students find a separate part-time job to help cover costs associated with Field Work Term. This approach permits students to commit the majority of their time to the experience that is in their field of interest. Both the paid and unpaid work can be counted toward the FWT hours requirement.
