Organization Type

Venture for Canada (VFC) is a WIL partner for the Business + Higher Education Roundtable (BHER). 

The partnership between BHER and VFC will create 300 new WIL experiences at small and medium sized enterprises across Alberta. These experiences will take the form of externships, which are high-quality WIL experiences that employers can offer students in a shorter amount of time. This makes them a more feasible option for Canadian SMEs, which can struggle to provide long-term opportunities. The VFC Externship Program will allow students to “dip their toes'' into an area of work and develop career-relevant skills over the period of 40 hours.
