Improving and expanding work-integrated learning.
To stay competitive in the wake of COVID-19, Canadian businesses will need talent with practical experience and future-relevant skills.
One of the most promising ways to build that talent is by expanding access to work-integrated learning (WIL) opportunities:
In partnership with:
We spoke to 620 WIL stakeholders from across Canada. Through 44 group consultations, 23 individual consultations, and a series of 14 virtual stakeholder meetings, we engaged business owners, senior executives, and supervisors in the private, public, not-for-profit, and academic sectors.
During the summer of 2020, we spoke to industry and education stakeholders from across Canada to better understand the barriers that employers and students face in creating or accessing work-integrated learning, particularly in the wake of COVID-19. We were looking for ways to increase the number and quality of WIL placement opportunities. This is what we heard.

Thanks to input from our stakeholders, the Business + Higher Education Roundtable will be able to expand WIL opportunities and ensure that Canada’s businesses are creating quality experiences for students across the country.
We would like to thank our 13 convening partners for their hard work engaging WIL stakeholders in their networks and regions.
