Bracebridge Chamber of Commerce is proud to introduce new tools to connect local businesses with local talent and drive growth – and potentially provide our Chamber members with wage subsidies of up to $7,500 (available for Fall and Winter student workplace program hires).
This Student Work Placement Program (SWPP) offers eligible employers up to $7,500 when they hire Canadian post-secondary students for work integrated learning (WIL) placements. In a period of downturn, SWPP can be valuable in helping employers boost capacity with new talent while offsetting costs.
SUBSIDY ELIGIBILITY: This subsidy only applies when the student is on a post secondary school workplace program of some type while working for you, such as an internship, apprenticeship, field placement or in a co-op program or any WIL placement (even a remote placement). Ineligible placements: Red Seal trades as they are funded differently.
If interested in the program, please contact the Chamber to learn more and so we can help you access this funding. ACT FAST as funding is presently available for Fall and Winter semester placements only until March 31, 2021. We are hopeful the program will be extended for spring and summer. Either way, it’s good to sign up to use the incredible job matching power of this program.
Powered by Magnet, job seekers and businesses can access a free to use digital platform that uses intelligent matching technology to connect employers with talent and make recruitment efforts easy and efficient. Given COVID, you can even hire students to work for you remotely. For example, you could hire a graphic design student needing to show workplace experience to work for you from their home – from anywhere in Canada.
