They work with businesses and post-secondary education institutions to:

  • provide wage subsidies to employers that offer quality student work placements; and
  • create partnerships with colleges, universities, polytechnics and CEGEPs to recruit students for these placements.

What is considered a student work placement?

Student work placement activities can include, but is not limited to:

  • mentorship programs;
  • co-op placements;
  • practicums;
  • applied research projects; and
  • internships.
