Now Looking for New Members from the Work-Integrated Learning Community!
WIL you Join?
Announcement: On November 14th, 2017, the association voted to expand its mandate to include all forms of Work Integrated Learning. While many of CEWIL Canada’s current members are involved in co-operative education and other forms of WIL, we are actively seeking new members whose portfolio includes forms of WIL, other than or in addition to, co-operative education.
Join CEWIL Canada if you are a practitioner* working in a co-operative education or work-integrated learning program or an employer with a professional interest in Co-op or WIL wishing to:

Our members include administrators, directors, coordinators, managers, faculty, corporate recruiters, and support staff.
