Student Work Integrated Learning Program, (SWILP), Wage Subsidies for Our Industry

The Canadian Council for Aviation & Aerospace (CCAA) has partnered with the government of Canada to administer a new wage subsidy program, which will help you manage your staffing needs and develop longer-term labour solutions.

Employers receive up to 50% of the student’s salary (to a maximum of $5,000) each time they hire a student. So, if a student is hired back the following year, the employer would qualify for another wage subsidy. In certain cases, the subsidy is even higher.  For first-year students and under-represented groups including women in STEM, Indigenous students, persons with disabilities and recent immigrants, the subsidy is up to 70% of the salary (to a maximum of $7,000 for every work term). This program runs for another 3 years allowing you to implement a structured plan for your workforce.
