Our mission

Successfully prepare students to meet their postgraduate goals through work-integrated learning (WIL) opportunities that equip them with valuable work experience, skills and knowledge, and contribute to their professional and personal growth.

What we do

The Institute for Co-operative Education combines academics with hands-on, full-time, paid work experience, allowing students to explore their career options while giving employers access to qualified students in more than 70 undergraduate and graduate programs. In addition to the flagship undergraduate Co-op offering, we also offer work-integrated learning options that can be flexible (C.Edge), intensive (ACE), or geared towards graduate students (Graduate Co-op).
