Partners in Education

Canada’s post-secondary institutions are essential partners in Food Processing Skills Canada’s SWPP+. Together we are delivering work placement opportunities and increasing graduate employment rates.

We all agree that increasing access to work-integrated learning for employers and students is a proven strategy for workforce development.

SWPP+ brings together employers, students, post-secondary institutions and organizations in the food and beverage manufacturing industry to drive systemic change in the skills development system at the post-secondary education level and aligns the technical, foundational and “work-ready” skills of students required by Canadian employers. 


Food Processing Skills Canada’s SWPP+ team is available to support schools in sharing information about Canadian food and beverage manufacturing placement opportunities with students.

 We offer videos, employment resources, employer introductions and the latest information on preparing and succeeding in a job. We will work closely with schools in matching students with meaningful work and training opportunities that complement the student’s educational path.  

Let our commitment to youth employment in the food and beverage manufacturing sector support you!
