At CGI, we centre our company on a common dream—one that serves as the overarching guide for our culture and aspirations. Learn more about the CGI Dream and the values that define our culture and motivate us.

While most companies have a vision and mission, CGI goes a step beyond. We have a company dream: “To create an environment in which we enjoy working together and, as owners contribute to building a company that we can be proud of.”

It really is our members that will make a difference and help us to be a world class information technology and business process services leader. Our students play a big part in the solutions that we deliver to our clients and have worked on some of the company’s biggest projects. A year’s industrial placement with CGI will help put your theoretical knowledge in to practice, will set you apart from you fellow students in your final year and could mean you leave us with a graduate offer for the following year.
