Disclaimer l High School Education in Ontario
High School Co-ops was designed to allow parents, students, and teachers the ability to find organizations that are interested in participating in high school co-operative education programs across Ontario. This website was not designed as a substitute for the students' or teachers' role in facilitating certain aspects of the placements. Please read the following:
- High School Co-ops was not created to facilitate placing students within the organizations found on this website. That remains the responsibility of the co-op teacher within each student's high school. Please take any information you find on this site and submit it to your child's co-op teacher for follow up.
- High School Co-ops does not guarantee that every student will be placed in any of the organizations found on this website. This site acts solely as a database for organizations that are open to having high school co-op students. Students may still have to undergo the interview process in order to obtain a placement. Please utilize your child's co-op teacher to facilitate this process.
- High School Co-ops does not guarantee that students will find a placement within their geographical region that meets their desired area of interest. This website serves as a directory of organizations that are willing to accept high school co-op students, and as a result, there may not be an organization in your region at this time that meets your search criteria. We are constantly seeking and searching for organizations to add to our information bank that meet each industry category.

- High School Co-ops was created as a database that catalogs organizations interested in having high school students participate in co-op placements. It remains the responsibility of the co-op teacher to liaise with and visit the organization to ensure the placement meets appropriate health and safety standards as well as the school's co-op program prerequisites.
- High School Co-ops does not ensure that the organizations are free from workplace violence and harassment of any kind (sexual, verbal, sexual orientation etc..). It is still the responsibility of the co-op teacher to liaise with and visit the organization to ensure the placement meets appropriate Ontario Human Rights Codes.
- High School Co-ops does not ensure the availability of placements for students, as organizations accept high school students on a first come, first served basis. High School Co-ops ensures only that these organizations are willing to enlist high school students when space is available.
