Monteith & Sutherland strives to bridge the gap between students and the workplace. In partnership with the University of Waterloo, Monteith & Sutherland participates in the world’s largest co-op program by hiring students on a 4-month full-time work term. The co-op program provides paid professional workplace experience with a variety of hand-on tasks.
On October 20th, Monteith & Sutherland Ltd. COO, Aleks Kubilius, attended the University of Waterloo Environment Alumni Awards Reception with co-op students Andrew Ling and John McLean. Both Andrew and John are currently studying an Undergraduate of Geomatics with the Faculty of Environment and working as geomatics field assistants on a large-scale settlement monitoring project with Monteith & Sutherland. An enjoyable awards reception night was held at Airship37 in Toronto’s Distillery District, which featured a powerful presentation by President & CEO of WWF Canada and 63rd Mayor of Toronto, David Miller.
