Funding opportunity

The Services for youth program has a “Career Focus” page.  It details funding of up to $16,000 for employers who may be hiring post-secondary students in a career position.  This enables them to gain work-place experience in a position related to the career for which they have studied.  It also helps employers finance a term employee.  It is a continuous intake program, but it is noted that applications should be sent about 4 months prior to the anticipated start date.

You can get further information on this program from Service Canada’s Youth Services Page on Career Focus

If you are after the program application because you already have that perfect post-secondary student in mind, Service Canada has that has well.

And if you do participate in this program, please let us know how it goes for you.  We are interested in hearing your feedback.
