The goal of this department is to enhance learning opportunities for students who are looking at careers in the skilled trades. There is a great demand for tradespeople across Canada and around the world.
Through CO-OP and OYAP youth can prepare themselves for a rewarding career in the trades by getting on the job experience in an apprenticeship role at local businesses and industries.


Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program

What is OYAP?

The Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP) is a school-to-work transition program offered through Ontario secondary schools. Full-time students in Grades 11 and 12 earn cooperative education credits through work placements in skilled trades.


Co-Operative Education

What is Cooperative Education (Co-op)

  • Cooperative Education is a ministry-approved program that allows students to earn secondary school credits while completing a work placement. The program consists of a co-op course monitored by a cooperative education teacher, a related curriculum course in any subject and a work placement.
  • Students can apply two co-op credits towards their compulsory high school graduation requirements, with no limit on earning optional co-op credits. Co-op placements are arranged for students by their secondary school and must follow Ministry of Education policy and guidelines.
