From student to supervisor: one student’s upward journey at Future Inns Hotel

“I knew I needed both work and life experience in Canada.

Each year, the MSVU Co-op Office publishes an annual report outlining our activities over the previous year. With co-op, internship and work experience students going out on work terms every semester, it can be challenging for us to find time to reflect on accomplishments in the moment. Building out a comprehensive annual report allows us to do that! It also gives our students, employers and funding partners insight into the work that we do to expand work integrated learning (WIL) across Canada and beyond.
