Albert S. Barber Award

The Albert S. Barber Award was instituted in 1982 to recognize outstanding contributions to the advancement of the philosophy and practice of Co-operative Education in Canada. The award honours Dr. Albert (Bert) S. Barber, the “Father of Co-operative Education in Canada,” who played a major role in paving the way for the promotion and advancement of Co-operative Education in Canada. As a proponent of the co-operative concept, Dr. Barber consulted with universities and colleges across the country and abroad, leading to the introduction of Co-operative Education programs at many educational institutions.

Dr. Barber was instrumental in the creation of CAFCE in 1973 and served on many committees of the National Commission on Co-operative Education (New York), and the Co-operative Education Division of the Society of Engineering Education. Dr. Barber was the first Director of Co-operative Education Programs at the University of Waterloo. A recipient of the Canadian Centennial Medal from the Government of Canada for his contributions, Dr. Barber died in 1992 at the age of 85.
