The Experiential Learning Employer Champion Awards were established by the CEL in 2010 to recognize employers making extraordinary contributions through their engagement with students. Recognizing our “champions”—successful employers—shines a spotlight on the good they are doing for their communities, while spurring other employers to get involved.
More than 40,000 employers across the province have been actively involved in shaping Ontario’s future workforce by providing students with the vital work experience and skills needed for a successful working life. The CEL awards are given for any of the following activities offered to students:
- Job Shadowing
- School-Work Transition Programs
- Classroom or Worksite Visits
- Career Talks
- Cooperative Education
- Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program
- Specialist High Skills Major Program
