CityLAB Is Recruiting NOW!

| June 7, 2023
Submitted by Vanessa Lam for Student Experience - Academic

Offered each Fall, the CityLAB Semester in Residence (SIR) program is a 15-unit experiential course designed for passionate, motivated, and enthusiastic students. During SIR, students have the opportunity to work alongside City of Hamilton staff, academics, and leaders of local community organizations to co-develop a community-engagement based initiative to address an issue currently facing the Hamilton community.

This year, CityLAB students will be working with city staff and partners to focus on the theme of climate resilience and climate justice. The units can be used towards the Interdisciplinary Minor in Community Engagement. If you are a student entering Level 3 and above, and are interested in learning from the community, applying your studies to make change, and expanding your personal and professional networks, then this is the program for you!

Applications for the 2023 cohort are due on June 12th, at 11:59 PM and be accessed here.
If you have any questions about the CityLAB experience or applications, please feel free to reach out to our Outreach Director Randy Kay ( You can also find us on Instagram @citylabsir
