CCAA and the Student Work-Integrated Learning Program

The Student Work-Integrated Learning Program will support partnerships between employers and post-secondary education (PSE) institutions to create more work-integrated learning placements for students enrolled in post-secondary studies across Canada. The program will focus on occupations in science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) and business. Canadian Council for Aviation & Aerospace is one of the partners that will deliver the program, working with employers and PSE institutions in the aviation and aerospace sector.

Under the Student Work-Integrated Learning Program, employers offering quality work-integrated learning placements to PSE students will be eligible to receive wage subsidies through Canadian Council for Aviation & Aerospace. Employers will receive wage subsidies of up to 50 percent of the wage cost for the placement (up to a maximum of $5,000 per placement) and up to 70 percent (up to a maximum of $7,000 per placement) for first-year students and under-represented groups including, women in STEM, Indigenous students, persons with disabilities and newcomers.


If you are a student interested in gaining experience in the aviation and aerospace sector, you should contact us or connect with your PSE institution to see if placements are available.

If you are an employer, including a small- and medium-sized enterprise, you are encouraged to contact us for more information on how to participate in this program. You can also partner with local PSE institutions that are delivering programs in STEM and business fields to provide work-integrated learning placements for students.

If you are a PSE institution delivering programs in STEM and business fields, you are encouraged to contact us to facilitate partnership opportunities with employers of all sizes. You can also reach out to local STEM and business employers in the area.
