We asked our winter co-op students what their most meaningful experience was at OMERS!

The time that I have spent working on OMERS over the last couple of months has been one of the most inspirational, impactful and fulfilling moments of my entire life.

OMERS truly went above and beyond to ensure the students felt connected.
