Hire students! Get a subsidy of up to $7,500 for their salary till March 31st, 2022.
With funding from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC), CHRC is launching the Student Work Placement (SWP) Program for the cultural sector. This program aims to connect students to cultural sector employers with wage subsidies for placements that offer students relevant work experience. Students will have the opportunity to apply learned skills through a paid position related to their field of study, and develop skills that will allow them to integrate seamlessly into the workforce. Employers will be able to engage with post-secondary institutions and students to align skills development to the labour market demand.
This project is funded by the Government of Canada's Student Work Placement.
CHRC continues to offer Respectful Workplaces in the Arts (RWA) workshops!
The workshops are intended for non-profit organizations and cultural workers in any of the cultural disciplines or industries: managers, administrators, technical personnel, Board members, volunteers and, obviously, artists.
Organizations that can bring together anywhere between 8 and 90 participants are invited to request to host a workshop. The summertime is a great moment to get together with your staff and/or members (virtually or in-person where permitted) to discuss this important topic.
Renewed thanks to Canadian Heritage for the funding support!
Share your story of cultural resilience, and have it amplified!
Many members of the Canadian cultural sector have shown incredible creativity and adaptability in responding to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Hill Strategies is currently collecting stories of resilience and innovation during the COVID-19 pandemic for Cultural Resilience: Using Innovation to Stabilize in Times of Crisis, a research-action initiative from the Creative City Network of Canada in partnership with the Cultural Human Resources Council and Les Arts et la Ville. Stories submitted at www.culturalresilience.ca will be listed and amplified for at least one year (from August 2021 to August 2022). Some stories will be investigated further and profiled online and in subsequent training programs. Submit your story today!
