Co-op Employers of the Year

Each year, UVic co-op staff nominate outstanding co-operative education employers who have gone above and beyond to support co-op student learning. In 2016, two extraordinary organizations were recognized for their outstanding student mentorship:

  • Victoria-based solar energy specialist HES PV was named the 2016 UVic Co-op Employer of the Year (fewer than 50 employees)
  • Parks Canada was awarded the 2016 Co-op Employer of the Year (more than 50 employees)
