STUDENT WORK PLACEMENT PROGRAM 

What is it? 

Funded by the Government of Canada, SWPP provides employers with wage subsidies of up to $7,500 to hire post-secondary students for paid work experiences. Students in turn benefit with quality work experience so they can secure employment in their chosen fields of study. 

Is it right for my business? 

Eligibility requirements for businesses to access SWPP wage subsidies include: 

  • Registered, Canadian business or not-for-profit. 
  • Federal, Provincial, Territorial and Municipal Government does not qualify. 
  • Are committed to paying the student for the role. 
  • Are willing to provide a quality learning experience to a PSE student. 
  • Has the financial capacity to pay the student for the duration of the placement in full (the wage subsidy will be administered after receiving the final pay stub at the end of the placement).

How can I use it? 

Employers can submit their SWPP application at swpp. magnet.today. Businesses can hire multiple Canadian post-secondary students and access up to $7,500 in support for each placement. 

What are the benefits of using it? 

SWPP is a tool that allows employers to make connections with student talent. For businesses and industries expecting waves of retirement in the near future, creating connections with students is an essential step in ensuring skill succession and a steady pipeline of talent. Thanks to the subsidies offered by SWPP and funder ESDC, employers can make those connections while saving costs. 

SWPP can also support businesses in a period of recovery by allowing them to enhance their capacity with new hires and offset costs with the program’s wage subsidies.
