Welcome to SWPP+

Food Processing Skills Canada’s Student Work Placement Program+ has made it easy for employers in Canada’s food and beverage manufacturing industry to connect with college and university students for work terms.

We know that hiring students is new for many employers.

To minimize barriers to entry, our online system has streamlined the hiring process and simplified access to wage subsidies of up to $7,000 per student term.

We also understand that students need opportunities to explore the food and beverage manufacturing industry and the variety of career paths on offer.

Matching employers offering great jobs in the food and beverage manufacturing industry with skilled young talent is our goal!
