Welcome to the Canada Open Source Project (CANOSP) website!

The Canada Open Source Projects (CANOSP) initiative is a Canada-wide academic program that connects top students from different universities to work on open-source projects over the course of a semester. CANOSP is an excellent opportunity for students at your institution to meet other students from computing science programs across the country, connect with industry, learn about open-source development, bolster their portfolios, and strengthen their skills as successful developers and software engineers.

We aim to offer this course during Fall and Winter semesters each year in cooperation with our project partners and sponsors. While projects and availability may change from semester to semester, some of the partners we have lined up include IBM, Mozilla, and Beanbag-who will provide excellent mentors with years of seasoned industry experience to offer.
