Not sure what you mean by this...

Do you mean will high school co-op help you get into university? No not at all. Universities look at your top 6 U/M courses and co-op is neither.

If you mean university co-op help you get a job, then yea. But ideally your coop placement would hire you if you performed well.

Coop at high school is a great program and something I regret not taking. Some kids from my high school got very legit coops. One of my friends did a full semester, 4 credit coop at a big 5 Canadian Bank as an admin assistant. Some of my friends got accounting gigs for small companies. These experiences could really help you stand out in your applications.

I did co-op last semester when I was in grade 11, and I got a terrific placement as a bank clerk at Scotiabank. It was very interesting and insightful. I am quite glad I took it.
