For a Co-op Work Term to be successful, the supervisor and student must establish an effective relationship. For the majority of placements, the student becomes an employee of the employing organization and is expected to be treated as any other temporary employee regarding benefits and other employment requirements as defined by the Employment Standards Act or a Collective Agreement. As such, the employer assumes responsibility, as they would for any other employee, for the period of the Co-op employment, and students accept the responsibilities of an employee.

As part of the Co-op program agreement, employers must complete an evaluation of the student. The evaluation can be completed via the online form, or downloaded and emailed.
