Access Funding for Student Hiring

To support your ability to hire students, there are a number of funding sources you may be eligible for, through the Student Work Placement Program (SWPP).

Through SWPP, employers can receive subsidies of up to 50% of a student’s wages, up to a maximum of $5,000. If the student is from an under-represented group (first-year students, women in STEM, Indigenous students, persons with disabilities, newcomers, and visible minorities), the wage subsidy is up to 70% or to a maximum of $7,000.
