Program Description

iBoost’s Apprentice Program connects Ryerson students with iBoost startups to create work-integrated learning opportunities.

This 4-month program is project-based - meaning, iBoost startups will provide a project or deliverable for the student Apprentice that can be completed within the term. The goal is to provide startups the talent support they need, while also allowing Ryerson students to grow their portfolio and experiences, equipping them for the workforce.


  • There will be a networking event prior to the start of the program to allow startups and students to meet and get to know each other.
  • These positions are unpaid. 
  • During the term (4 months), the student Apprentice will be working a maximum of 8-12 hours per month.
  • The Apprentice and startup will both sign an agreement to set expectations before the term begins.
