Signing up for coop but have reference issue


Reaction score
Hi, I'm 16 and applying for the Candain Armed Forces Coop for next year. The application says that I need to have references that have known me for the last 5 years. I don't have anyone that has known me. The highest I can get is 3-4 years from my highschool teachers. Would that be okay?
