  • Up to 50% of the wage cost (up to $5,000) per student
  • Up to 70% of the wage cost (up to $7,000) per placement of a student from an under-represented group (first-year students, women in STEM, Indigenous students, persons with disabilities and newcomers)


You can apply to one of many participating employer groups.
