How do I get a Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) experience?

With a huge range of industry partners looking for George Brown College students, we have a work-integrated learning (WIL) opportunity right for you.  

Academic divisions have different processes to support students with finding and securing WIL opportunities.

The first place to start is by contacting your industry liaison team.

In addition to connecting you with employers, we also offer students opportunities to participate in competitions, attend industry functions and events and learn from guest speakers.
