Employment and Social Development Canada – Career Focus

You could get financial assistance if you can offer career-related work experience to young people between the ages of 15 and 30. To qualify, your business or non-profit organization needs to:


  • Hire 8 or more recruits (exceptions for rural or remote regions)
  • Offer between 6 and 12 months of work that improves the skills of recruits
  • Provide coaching or mentoring
  • Base the project in Canada


Priority is given to work experience in growth sectors.
