Wage Subsidies for Healthcare Organizations to Hire Students


Is your organization faced with labour supply issues caused by COVID-19? Would a talent influx of young, eager students help alleviate some of those challenges? Could you benefit from wage subsidies to offset the cost associated with these hires? 

Here’s some great news. As a direct response to COVID-19 and the need for additional healthcare workers, BioTalent Canada’s Student Work Placement Program (SWPP) has been extended to include Canada’s healthcare sector

The subsidy covers up to 75% of a student’s work placement to a maximum of $7,500. 

BioTalent Canada—the HR partner of and catalyst for growth in Canada’s bio-economy—has a long track record of success managing wage subsidy programs. SWPP alone has placed over 1,500 students. To meet the current demands for talent, BioTalent Canada will place an additional 1,500 students within Canada’s healthcare industry between now and March 2021.
