With the introduction of programs like the Specialist High Skills Major and an increased emphasis on experiential learning programs as part of each student's individual pathway toward success, the role of Ontario's employers in education has never been more important. Students are counting on the involvement of local businesses and organizations to gain the experience and skills they need to fulfill their career ambitions.
