SWPP for Students

Applications for the 2019 Spring & Summer semesters are open.


Students – Take advantage of SWPP while looking for a work placement

Are you a post-secondary education student looking for a work placement? Tell your potential employer about the Student Work Placement Program (SWPP) funding, where employers receive a wage subsidy from the government for providing quality employment to post-secondary education students – a great incentive to hire a student like you!

To be eligible for the SWPP grant, you (the student) must:

  • be registered in a post-secondary STEM or business program that includes work placements/internships/practicum
  • be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or person with refugee protection given under the law
  • be legally able to work in Canada according to the laws and regulations of the province or territory where you live

If you want to find out more about this program, visit the ESDC website at https://www.canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/programs/work-integrated-learning.html
