COVID-19 Resources

CEWIL Canada is committed to bringing together the co-operative education and work-integrated learning community during this uncertain and unprecedented time. We have seen our membership and partners join together to work through unpredictable challenges and we are proud to provide leadership and guidance as much as possible during this time. We will continue to offer updates to our community and partners and offer ways to collaborate and share information and best practices.  

We are offering weekly meetings on Monday's at 1:00 (EST) for our community and guests to come together to discuss recent events as well as to share information.  Please email for information on how to join these virtual meetings.  

Thank you to the CEWIL community for your leadership, your passion and your commitment to work-integrated learning throughout this ever changing time.  Please continue to come back to this page for up-to-date information and sharing.
