The BC Work Integrated Learning Council (BCWC) is an independent council of the ACE-WIL BC/Yukon.
The Council is comprised of one member from each public, post-secondary co-operative education and work integrated learning institution in BC/Yukon as appointed by the president of the institution. Other members include the current president of ACE-WIL and a representative from the provincial ministry responsible for post-secondary education and skills training.
BCWC is accountable to key co-operative education and work integrated learning stakeholders (such as students, employers, government, and educational institutions). The BCWC council members have been instrumental in working with the provincial government to develop the Co-op Tech grant, improving the co-op and WIL profile on the WorkBC website, and making recommendations for government funding provided strengthen WIL across BC.
BCWC also liaises with a number of organizations, associations and other government departments at the provincial, national and international level to further the cause of co-operative education and work-integrated learning.
