This week I have more good news for you regarding hiring new employees. Several government funding programs were opened to help Canadian businesses hire graduates. These industry specific age subsidies pay up to $20,000.
The industries listed below are eligible. It means that if you belong to those industries or are hiring professionals with one of the following fields of study, you are eligible. So, here they are:
Information Technologies (IT);
Electrical Works, Power Generation and Distribution;
Food Processing (coming soon, not confirmed funding yet);
Science, Technology and Engineering.
There are some rules as usual. For example, these subsidies only apply to new hires, not to existing employees. Also, you must hire graduates under 30 years of age.
Contact us today to learn more about these programs and get help with choosing the most appropriate ones for your business.
