The Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce (GKWCC) is a WIL partner for the Business + Higher Education Roundtable (BHER).
The partnership between BHER and GKWCC is aimed at creating 200 new work-integrated learning (WIL) opportunities with small businesses in the Kitchener Waterloo region, by expanding the Access Student Talent program. Access Student Talent is made possible by a $367,853 investment from the Government of Canada through BHER. This support will allow the GKWCC to increase small business participation in WIL by educating employers on WIL, building new connections between employers and post-secondary institutions, and creating important resources.
