The subsidy is available for placements as of April 1st, 2022.

With funding from Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC), CHRC is offering a new round of funding into 2022-2023 for students of all academic fields to gain work experience.

This year, CHRC is offering a maximum 50% wage subsidy (maximum $5,000) for eligible placements, and a maximum %70 wage subsidy (maximum $7,000) for students confirmed to be part of a priority group! To learn more about priority groups, click here.

Before applying: In short, the three key evaluation criteria are:

  • The employer must be a (non-governmental) cultural sector establishment (profit or non-profit).
  • The student must be enrolled in a Canadian post-secondary institution, must be legally entitled to work in Canada in accordance with the laws and regulations of the province or territory in which they are employed, and the student must either be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident or a person granted refugee protection under the law.
  • The job description should be related to the student's field of study and thus enable the student to apply his/her knowledge and/or allow the student to develop skills for the labour market.
