Info Session: Accessing Student Wage Subsidies

The Propel Student Work Placement Program offers tourism and hospitality employers access to up to $7,500 in wage subsidies when they hire a post-secondary student for work-integrated learning: an internship, a co-op placement, a work experience placement, and more.

The many benefits? Students gain paid hands-on learning and mentoring in their field of study. Employers acquire much-needed early talent to help with the recovery of the industry, as well as assistance with wages after an 18-month stretch of little or no income. Post-secondary institutions complement their programming by connecting students and the workplace.

Tourism HR Canada will be hosting an info session on this recently launched program on Thursday, October 7, at 1:00pm Eastern.

Join the one-hour virtual session to learn:

  • What work-integrated learning is, why it matters, and how it can benefit your business
  • Who qualifies for the Propel program
  • Where to post a job
  • How to apply for a wage subsidy
  • What information you’ll need
  • When the subsidy is available
  • How Tourism HR Canada can support you

A Q&A component will follow the presentation. Registrants are invited to submit questions in advance via the registration form.
