The role of Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning (CEWIL) Canada in supporting HUMA’s Experiential Learning and Pathways to Employment for Canadian Youth study

The role of Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning (CEWIL) Canada in supporting HUMA’s Experiential Learning and Pathways to Employment for Canadian Youth study

The purpose:  To provide background information on CEWIL Canada and highlight opportunities for the Government of Canada to support experiential learning’s role in assisting young Canadians through the transition between post-secondary education and the labour market. 

 

We will address several of the study’s seven main themes:

  • youth underemployment after completing their education;
  • youth unemployment and how it harms the transition to the workforce;
  • volunteerism and internships and how they inform work decisions for students;
  • school-to-work transition strategy in Canada compared with international models and programs;
  • apprenticeships;
  • co-op programs and work-integrated learning; and
  • entrepreneurship.
