I’m pleased to announce that our new report has been published by the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario (HEQCO).

As per the HEQCO website:

the report, “Maximizing Opportunity, Mitigating Risk: Aligning Law, Policy and Practice to Strengthen Work-Integrated Learning in Ontario, identifies seven areas for institutions and policy makers to focus on: employment standards, health and safety, human rights, intellectual property, employment insurance, immigration law and tax expenditures. The study found that while only a small number of cases result in litigation, campus leaders and legal representatives are becoming increasingly preoccupied interpreting unclear laws and regulation, mediating disputes and negotiating agreements to address this growing and changing area of postsecondary education.

A short, Stakeholders Summary can be accessed here and the full report, including an executive summary, can be accessed here.
