I don't know if you speak french but if you do, University of Sherbrooke has a "coop program" with employers which gives you a better access to work experience placement. The city is nice but small.
As for civil and mech engineers. There is a lot of jobs for both, maybe more for civil but salary wise, I was told mech makes more, but i guess it just depends where you work.

Concordia University has co-op too, incase someone feels like doing it in english I guess.

Considering where he's from I doubt concordia or sherbrooke or a real option though.
