Canadian Healthcare gains access to National Student Placement Program

Providing wage subsidies to healthcare students builds on BioTalent Canada’s successful track record of delivering Student Work Placement Program (SWPP) in the bioscience industry since 2017. Over the past three years, with its many wage subsidy programs including SWPP, BioTalent Canada has placed 2,650 students with biotechnology companies across the country.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has been devastating to employment in Canada, including for young people and new graduates,” said Rob Henderson, President and Chief Executive Officer of BioTalent Canada. “Enhancements to the Student Work Placement Program will ensure that young people gain valuable career experience and position them to secure meaningful employment in healthcare.”
