WIN: Expanded work integrated learning opportunities

Work integrated learning opportunities, including paid internships, apprenticeships, and co-ops, give students practical experience in their field. It comes as no surprise that participation in these opportunities are linked to strong employment outcomes post-graduation. CASA has long advocated for increasing the number of work integrated learning opportunities for students.

Budget 2016 saw investments in work integrated learning opportunities to the tune of $73 million. As a result, thousands more students will be able to participate in compensated work integrated learning opportunities while attending higher education.
