POST A JOB & HIRE A STUDENT

SWPP+ brings together employers, students and post-secondary school stakeholders to create quality work-integrated learning (WIL) opportunities.

As per the Government of Canada, the number of placements at the 75% subsidy value are limited and subject to availability.

The final subsidy amount will be determined at the end of the placement term upon receipt of all supporting documents. This will include a final accounting of each placement’s actual length and total wages paid to the student (i.e., pay stubs). Food Processing Skills Canada has the right to deny payment should the employer fail to provide all required information and documents as per the program. All payments provided by Food Processing Skills Canada shall be considered final.

Placements can be partially government-funded from non-federal sources, but only funds from non-governmental sources can be subsidized under this program (i.e., a position paid with 60% provincial grant funding is only eligible for a subsidy on the 40% of the non-governmental funds).

Funding is limited and administered on a first come, first served basis wherein completed applications are prioritized in the order they are received.
