The Magnet Student Work Placement Program (SWPP) brings together employers, students, and post-secondary school stakeholders to create quality work-integrated learning (WIL) opportunities.

The program provides employers with wage subsidies to hire post-secondary students for paid work experiences. Students in turn benefit with quality work experience so they can secure employment in their chosen fields of study.

Wage Subsidy Eligibility

The project is funded by the Government of Canada’s Student Work Placement Program.

In partnership with RBC, Magnet is proud to support businesses across Canada through the creation of the RBC Youth Employer Portal, which connects employers with the best young talent.
