This is a government sponsored program which provides eligible job seekers with help to find work by subsidizing their salaries for a pre-determined and agreed upon period of time but the job is intended to be long term. To participate, candidates must be on EI or have established a claim in the last 3 years (5 years if leave was parental).
These are not job placements - they are regular jobs which require the applicant to interview for the position as well as go through a probationary period. When eligible participants are hired, it is because they have the skills to do the work, not because of the subsidy.
The program is administered by contracted agencies on behalf of the government. For more info, contact us and/or check the following links:
