Realizing Success Through Young Talent with BioTalent Canada

October 14, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm










BioTalent Canada has a long track record of successful wage-subsidy programs, helping new talent gain the skills needed for employment in biotech while assisting companies in offsetting the costs associated with hiring.

As a direct response to COVID-19 and the need for additional healthcare workers, BioTalent Canada’s Student Work Placement Program (SWPP) has been extended to include Canada’s healthcare sector. There are 1,500 open spots available in 2020-21.

This webinar will focus on how BioTalent Canada’s wage subsidy programs have helped organizations find success in advancing their technologies while helping young talent gain the skills needed to grow the biotech and healthcare sectors.
