CCAA and the Student Work Placement Program (SWPP)
The Student Work Placement Program (SWPP) is funded by the Federal Government (Employment and Social Development Canada, ESDC), and supports partnerships between employers and post-secondary education institutions to create more work-integrated learning placements for students enrolled in post-secondary studies across Canada. The Canadian Council for Aviation & Aerospace (CCAA) is the partner selected by ESDC to deliver the program for the aviation and aerospace sector.
Employers could receive wage subsidies of up to 50% of the wage cost for each work term placement (up to a maximum of $5,000 per placement) and up to 70% (up to a maximum of $7,000 per work term placement) for first-year students and/or under-represented groups including, women in STEM, Indigenous students, persons with disabilities and recent immigrants (i.e. permanent residents).
NEW! The CCAA now has limited funding available for:
- Part-time and full-time students registered in programs other than STEM and business
- Part-time work placements
The CCAA is pleased to announce that we still have funding for about 21 student placements for the Winter 2020 term.

Important Update: ESDC has updated the guidelines of the program such that the funding would only be provided to employers demonstrating a net increase in the number of placements offered per year. By establishing a Net New Placement baseline, the funding is expected to motivate employers to hire a higher number of students than previous years. Only applications for work placements exceeding the baseline number will be considered. For instance, if your organization indicates a baseline of 5 placements, the CCAA would fund as of the 6th placement and upwards.
