The Canadian Council of Independent Laboratories has launched CCIL Supports STEM Students, a multifaceted program designed to help young people further their education and advance their careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

CCIL and its members – the independent, private-sector testing laboratories across Canada – provide scholarships, co-op placements, summer jobs, and other opportunities for STEM students. The program also encourages these students to consider a career in the testing industry.
