What could your company achieve with up to $7,000 in co-op wage subsidies?
 

The Student Work Placement Program (SWPP) is an initiative to increase the job-readiness of students registered in STEM or business and all other programs at Canadian post-secondary institutions.
 
The program gives employers the freedom to:
  • Gain access to funds to hire co-op students
  • Leverage a pool of workers eager to enhance their skills
  • Develop new talent for future recruitment needs
     

Program description

The program’s co-op wage subsidies help knock down that cost barrier, by covering the cost of a co-op student’s salary by 50% up to a maximum of $5,000 and 70% up to a maximum of $7,000 for first-year students and under-represented groups including:

  • Women in STEM (Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics)
  • Indigenous students
  • Persons with disabilities
  • Newcomers
     
The program enables you to bring on an eager-to-learn student for a special project – and at the end of the placement end up with a skilled candidate already oriented to your company who could meet your future recruiting needs.
