Propel Employer Stories: Roadside Hospitality

Created specifically for the tourism sector, the Propel Student Work Placement Program connects employers with post-secondary students looking to complete a paid work-integrated learning opportunity: a co-op placement, an internship, and more.

Numerous tourism-related businesses across Canada are benefitting from these placements and the accompanying wage subsidies, helping to ensure they have a skilled team ready to meet rising visitor demand.
