Tourism and Hospitality Student Work Placement Program

Aimed squarely at the tourism and hospitality sector, the Propel Student Work Placement Program is a new initiative to help the hardest-hit sector recover from the devastating impacts of the pandemic.

The latest addition to the Government of Canada’s Student Work Placement Program, Propel offers post-secondary students opportunities to develop the work-ready skills required to secure meaningful employment upon graduation.

Qualifying employers are provided with a wage subsidy of up to $7,500 for each student hired through the program (from June 1, 2021, to March 31, 2022).

Tourism HR Canada will also be offering a series of  virtual info sessions, including an overview of the eligibility criteria and application process. A Q&A session with attendees follows the presentation. The next Propel Info Session will take place Thursday, December 9, at 1:00pm Eastern Time.
