Employers support Waterloo co-op during pandemic; well-being a top priority
By Michelle Radman
The office landscape has changed dramatically in the last few months. Many University of Waterloo co-op students were on their work term when the pandemic hit in March and needed to quickly adapt to a new world. Without hesitation, employers adjusted operations from working in-person to a virtual world. At the same time, many found ways to provide the support and peace-of-mind that co-op students needed to help adjust.
Well-being and safety first

CEE and WI collaborate to support co-op students
Waterloo International (WI) has allocated $20,000 to support co-op students. This is the result of a collaboration with Co-operative and Experiential Education (CEE), who identified a need to provide additional resources to international students.
“Traditionally, our international co-op students have a great track record of finding employment,” says Norah McRae, associate provost of CEE. “The pandemic has added challenges and barriers that we’re committed to helping them overcome.”
