NOW OPEN: Get Youth Working! funding

Employer subsidiesHi Funds Fans!  Long time, no see.  Between semester end projects, essays and tax time, it’s been a bit hectic around here.  However, things should be up and running normally again soon 🙂

The Get Youth Working! Program is funded through the Canada-British Columbia Labour Market Agreement. The Program offers employers a $2,800 hiring incentive (up to 3 employees at $2,800 each) to hire eligible youth 15 to 29 years of age. Additionally, employers may request up to $1,000 to purchase training for the newly hired youth. Training activities must be pre-approved and completed within the term of the funding agreement.

The Hiring Incentive application is easy! Conduct your own recruiting. At any time during your recruiting process complete and submit an online application. The approval process is quick and easy and if you and your proposed new hire meet the program criteria, you are eligible for the funding.

No complicated paperwork! Once approved, the $2,800 hiring incentive is disbursed to you in equal monthly payments throughout the hiring incentive period.
