Funding Supports to be Discussed

The Co-operative Education Tax Credit (CETC)

The CETC is an Ontario tax credit that is available to employers of students from many co-op and internship programs. The credit can total as much as $3,000 per student per paid work term.

The Student Work Placement Program (SWPP)

The SWPP is a wage subsidy program that provides postsecondary students paid work experience. Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) works with Employer Delivery Partners to provide student work placements and wage subsidies of up to $5,000–$7,000.

Career-Integrated Learning at Sheridan College

Sheridan has facilitated work-integrated learning for students for more than 30 years and is home to both Ontario and Canada’s top co-op students for many years running. Sheridan students bring new energy, ideas and skills to the workplace and may be eligible for government incentives to cover a portion of wages.

If you are an employer looking to post a co-op/internship opportunity for Summer 2022, please use the Sheridan Works platform to register and create a job posting.
