The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted a number of industries across the country, and the tourism & hospitality industry is near, if not at the top of, that list. The challenge now is how to address the labour crisis this industry is facing.
CEWIL Canada, the lead organization for work-integrated learning in Canada, has a weekly podcast called Into the WILderness, a topic-driven show to dive deeper into the world of work-integrated learning (WIL).
The most recent episode features the Propel Student Work Placement Program (SWPP). Tourism HR Canada Director Joe Baker and CEWIL Associate Director of Partnerships Dan Lonergan talk funding opportunities, COVID impact, empathy, workplace culture and most importantly–where WIL fits in this industry.
