The ability to demonstrate relevant professional experience will be given individual consideration
"The Ministry has been hiring co-op students for years, and many have gone on to successful careers within the Ontario Public Service. We look for hard-working, ethical, lateral thinkers who integrate well within our team – and Laurier students regularly meet and exceed this mark. In a fast-moving policy environment, Laurier co-op students demonstrate an ability to learn at a rapid pace and make a real impact on public service objectives.” Vasu Daggupaty, Team Lead & Policy Advisor Ministry of Economic Development, Trade & Employment
