CEWIL National Co-op & WIL Day

Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning Canada (CEWIL Canada) is the leading organization for work-integrated learning in Canada.  CEWIL partners with post-secondary institutions, community members, employers, government, and students to champion work-integrated learning (WIL).

Each year, on the 4th Wednesday of March, CEWIL is pleased to celebrate the National Day of WIL! This year the National Day of WIL will be on March 24th, 2021.
