Please note that the Workplace Learning Coordinators (Co-op Coordinators) are not “authorized representatives” in accordance with the section 91 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, (June 2011) and are therefore unable to advise students on immigration options, help them complete or submit immigration forms, or communicate with CIC on their behalf.
