What is the Co-op Program?
The Cooperative Education Program (Co-op) is an educational tool that allows students to participate in an unpaid apprenticeship program in a work environment. While they earn credits towards their Ontario Secondary School Diploma, students apply in the workplace what they have learned in class.
More about the Co-op Program
The Program is offered during the school year as well as during the summer.
