ICTC's WIL Digital program provides employers with wage subsidies to provide a meaningful work-integrated learning placement to post-secondary students.
WIL Digital is an innovative work placement program that benefits both employers and students. WIL Digital helps employers grow their businesses by providing a wage subsidy to hire post-secondary students while students gain meaningful work experience and on-the-job learning. WIL Digital is funded by the Government of Canada's Student Work Placement Program (SWPP). ICTC is among the first organizations to deliver this program.
In addition to work-integrated learning, ICTC also offers access to exclusive e-learning courses. Through taking these courses WIL Digital students develop foundational technology, business, and entrepreneurship skills.
WIL Digital provides employers with a wage subsidy of up to 50% of a student’s salary up to $5,000, or 70% up to $7,000 for underrepresented students.
Underrepresented groups include:
- Women in STEM,
- Indigenous Peoples,
- Students with disabilities
- Visible minorities
- Newcomers to Canada
- First-year students
