Student Work-Integrated Learning Program

Employment and Social Development Canada, Government of Canada

If your business is having difficulty finding qualified workers in the field of science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) and business, you can apply for a wage subsidy to hire a post-secondary student.

Subsidies cover:

  • Up to 50% of the wage cost (up to $5,000) per student
  • Up to 70% of the wage cost (up to $7,000) per placement of a student from an under-represented group (first-year students, women in STEM, Indigenous students, persons with disabilities and newcomers)

You can apply to one of many participating employer groups.
