The ACCE-WIL-BC exists to provide and encourage the adoption of consistent program guidelines and standards for quality co-operative education and work integrated learning in BC, to gather and disseminate relevant data, and to work as a collective voice to discuss accountability and institutional issues related to co-operative education and work integrated learning.The ACCE-WIL Mandate »
The ACCE-WIL council members were also instrumental in working with the provincial government to develop the Co-op Tech grant, improving the co-op and WIL profile on the WorkBC website, and making recommendations for the receiving of $1.3 million provided to BC Co-op Institutions within BC. ACCE-WIL also liaises with a number of organizations, associations and other government departments at the provincial, national and international level to further the cause of co-operative education and work-integrated learning.
Each institution has one co-op or WIL delegate to represent them at ACCE-WIL-BC. Other members include the current president of ACE-WIL and a representative from the provincial ministry responsible for post-secondary education and skills training.

Also there are a number of sub-committees working on a variety of issues throughout the year.Process for ACCE-WIL Advocacy »
