Ottawa renews funding for BHER program

October 1, 2022

The federal government has renewed funding for the Business + Higher Education Roundtable (BHER) program.

The $17.1-million investment over the next three years will enable the creation and scaling of over 22,300 work-integrated learning (WIL) opportunities for students across Canada.

The WIL programs will build on existing skills with on-the-job placements that help students get a sense of workplace culture, experience the true industry environment, enhance their soft skills and technical skills, and build professional networks, says Ottawa.
