The Work-Integrated Learning Program (WIL) is an educational experience used to integrate learning with practical application in the workplace. BBPA, Centennial College, and Tropicana Community Services have created a program to place students into working environments aimed at improving their career opportunities. The goal of WIL is to ensure students are prepared to enter the workforce post-graduation. Participating in this program will allow you to work with skilled, enthusiastic, well-trained and productive employees who will add value to your company.


With the generous support of the Canadian government, the Business and Higher Education Roundtable (BHER) is committed to supporting the WIL ecosystem across Canada. To help deliver this commitment BHER is proud to partner with Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning Canada (CEWIL Canada) to establish this competitive granting process. Awarded grants will help employers increase their capacity and ability to create new WIL experiences.
