Welcome to Co-op @ Contact

A programme offering students the opportunity to earn academic credits while working in paid or volunteer positions during and/or after school

Overview of Co-op program at Contact


Both paid work and volunteer placements may be used to earn credits. All placements must meet TDSB standards for safety, appropriateness, etc. The number of hours used from a paid job is limited and must correspond to times when the Co-op teacher is available to make a monitoring call. Certain jobs (e.g., roofer, tattoo artist, baby-sitter, any unsupervised work, etc) cannot be used for Co-op credit.

Co-op ‘packages’ are individually designed for each student based on an assessment her/his academic needs. Students who have completed very few compulsory credits may not be eligible for some Co-op ‘packages’.

Students may apply at any time, but may be placed on a waiting list before being able to earn credit hours.

Admission to Co-op is based solely on the school’s assessment of the applicant’s academic needs, and the number of places available in the programme at any given time.

All pre-placement requirements (including the signed Work- Education Agreement) must be completed before students may begin to earn credit hours.
