The month of March was National WIL Month! Each year, Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning Canada (CEWIL) celebrates the successes and promotes awareness of Work-Integrated Learning programs across Canada from March 1 until March 31. The WIL Centre engaged our FSCS Instagram page (@humberfscs) to bring awareness regarding WIL topics such as sharing student stories, best WIL practices, partnership appreciation and information, WIL Centre staff introductions, and promoting student engagement overall. WIL month celebrates, shares, and appreciates all our members, partners, and students. The themes for 2022 WIL were #InspiredWIL and #HumberWILPower. This theme was chosen to encourage and promote resilience, curiosity, and self-discovery. One way the WIL Centre celebrated students was by giving away gift cards.
Part of this year’s WIL Month, CEWIL launched a beta version of a national WIL directory, the first of its kind in Canada. This directory outlines WIL opportunities across Canada and aims to be a central location for academic WIL programs for employer and community partners to engage with one another.
