CEWIL, Canada extend partnership to support 18,000 additional WIL opportunities

Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning (CEWIL) Canada and the Government of Canada have extended a partnership that will give postsecondary students enhanced access to work-integrated learning (WIL) opportunities. The two-year agreement extension will include $36M in funding to support an additional 18,000 WIL opportunities for students. CEWIL’s Innovation Hub (iHub) will also continue funding grants that focus on expanding WIL access, removing barriers to participation, enhancing programming through technology, and partnerships for innovating WIL. “The pandemic and evolving labour market has continued to call upon us all to think outside the box in providing work-integrated learning,” said CEWIL President Dr Matthew Rempel. “Inspiring innovation in WIL creates wider access to quality WIL and responds to changing needs of students, post-secondary institutions, and industry.” CEWIL Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
