Studies with youth in Ontario show that the more exposure they have to career options, the more likely they are to be satisfied with their career choices.

Unfortunately, 70% of Ontario students report not receiving up-to-date information about career pathways and job opportunities from their school, leading them to feel anxious, discouraged, and dissatisfied in their transition to the workforce.

Our Mission

The Business and Education Partnership is an award-winning charity that helps young people in Waterloo Region better understand and prepare for the world of work, so that they can build a successful career path.

We do this by creating career exploration, skill development, and networking opportunities between local students and industry professionals.

By bringing Waterloo Region together to invest in our future workforce, we strengthen our local economy and community.
