Introduction to the Employer Directory

Welcome to the VIU Employer Directory, designed by the Centre for Experiential Learning and Career Studio to help students and graduates to connect with employers and employment opportunities within the Vancouver Island community and across Canada. This resource is curated to connect you, our students and graduates, with leading employers eager to harness fresh talent for internships and employment across a spectrum of industries.

The VIU Employer Directory is designed to be your compass to begin navigating the professional landscape, bridging the gap between your academic achievements and your career aspirations, but please be aware that there might be local opportunities and organizations that are not included on this resource, and continue to conduct your own research and build your network.

As you are interacting with employers, please also remember that you represent Vancouver Island University. Visit this Business Etiquette resource that our team has developed, or visit the VIU Career Studio if you need additional help.

No organizations have paid to be included on this resource, and the Centre for Experiential Learning reserves the right to not display an organization on this resource at our discretion.
