Reminder: Employer Excellence Awards

The Passport to Prosperity program administered through the Upper Canada Leger Centre for Education and Training, in partnership with the CDSBEO and the UCDSB will be sponsoring an “Employer Excellence Awards” event being held on Friday April 15 from 7:45 to 9:30 at the North Grenville Municipal Centre, Kemptville.

This event is being held to honour and celebrate employers who participate in cooperative education, the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program and other forms of experiential learning. The Kemptville event will recognize employers from the western region of the CDSBEO and the UCDSB.

Seven CDSBEO secondary schools and 15 UCDSB schools have been invited to nominate an employer who’s time, energy and effort has made them exemplary in their school communities. Those employers will be invited to attend the breakfast where they will be presented with a certificate in recognition of their efforts, by a student from the school along with their co-op teacher. A total of 22 schools will be involved in the event that will be attended by representatives of the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities, Members of Parliament and other elected officials including school board Trustees.

Participating schools from this region that were asked to nominate an employer are reminded to confirm their attendance with Jennifer MacLachlan
