Today, I was pleased to join the Honourable Patty Hajdu, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour, in Spadina-Fort York to announce the Government of Canada will help create 60,000 student work placements over the next five years. This is an exciting announcement that will give students hands-on experience while finishing their studies.
The announcement was made at Synaptive Medical during an event hosted by BioTalent Canada, one of several industry partners working with the Government of Canada. BioTalent Canada, a national non-profit organization, is the human resources partner of Canada’s bio-economy and focuses on building partnerships and skills for Canada’s bio-economy to ensure the industry has access to job-ready people. BioTalent, which has taken a leadership role in providing student work placements, will receive close to $5.6 million.
