Student Placements

Interested in a student placement?


A student placement at Hospice West Parry Sound offers a great opportunity to link skills and theoretical learning to professional therapeutic practice, as well as offering on-going training opportunities, networking and support. We are creating a centre of excellence in bereavement and life-limiting illness work and aim to provide an environment of learning and development within our field.


Hospice West Parry Sound currently offers placement opportunities for students enrolled in Northern College’s Social Service Work diploma program and Lakehead University’s Social Work undergraduate and graduate programs. If you are enrolled in one of these programs and are considering a placement, please contact the relevant department within your college or university.


We also welcome enquiries from students studying at other institutions who may wish to explore the possibility of completing a placement with us.  To make a general enquiry about a placement, please contact our office at 705-746-4540; Ext. 1416.
