Career Ready Program | TECHNATION


up to $7000.00 in wage subsidy


As part of the Government of Canada’s Student Work Placement Program (SWPP), TECHNATION’s wage subsidy program, Career Ready supports businesses by financing their decision to hire a student for a work-term placement. This in turn creates a rewarding opportunity for the student to apply their learning in real-world settings and puts them on a path to a bright career.

Eligible Applicants

Accept applications from registered Canadian businesses and non-profits who can provide a meaningful, tech-focused work placement opportunity to a student. Check out our employer resources to learn more. Large financial sector employers are no longer eligible, as well as post-secondary institutions and municipalities.

Students must be registered in an accredited Canadian post-secondary institution and must work in a role that is tech immersive – although they aren’t required to be studying something in tech! Check out our student resources to learn more.

Unfortunately, this subsidy is not awarded to international students at this time.

Eligible Expenses

The program provides 50% (to a maximum of $5000.00) of a student’s pay in wage subsidies to employers.

An increased subsidy of 70% (to a maximum of $7000.00) is awarded to employers hiring students from under-represented groups:

  • Women studying Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths (STEM)
  • Indigenous students
  • Visible minorities
  • New Canadians (within 5 years)
  • Persons with disabilities
  • Students in their first year of study

Deadline Date

  The Fall 2022 program (September 1 – December 31) is now open until August 31, 2022. Winter 2023 Program (January 1 – April 30) – Opening in October 2022
