NS invests $1M for co-op placements

August 13, 2018

The Government of Nova Scotia has announced a $1M budget increase in its co-op program that will create space for another 200 students. The Chronicle Herald explains that the program provides wage assistance to private-sector, government-funded, and non-profit programs that offer career-related work experiences to postsecondary students. “The biggest thing is definitely the hands-on experience, so getting to actually use the skills that I'm learning in school,” said Dalhousie University student Ben Parmiter. “My problem-solving, my analysis skills, so actually applying real-world examples instead of just textbook examples is really important.”
