Subsidizing work integrated learning placements to prepare students for the cultural workforce.
With funding from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC), CHRC is launching the Student Work Placement (SWP) Program for the Canadian cultural sector. This program aims to connect students to Canadian cultural sector employers with wage subsidies for placements that offer students relevant work experience to their field of study.
Hire students! Get a salary subsidy of up to $7,500 till March 31st, 2022.
With the SWP program, over 150 placements are anticipated in not-for-profit and for-profit employers of all sizes. Eligible employers and students may receive a wage subsidy for up to 75%, to a maximum of $7,500.
Strengthening the Canadian Cultural Sector.
Students will have the opportunity to apply learned skills through a paid position related to their field of study and develop skills that will allow them to integrate seamlessly into the workforce. Employers will be able to engage with post-secondary institutions and students to align skills development to the labour market demand.
