Wage Subsidy for work term students in technology

NOTE: This opportunity has expired or is an event which has already taken place.

Is your organization looking for employees with ICT and workplace-ready skills (communication, teamwork and problem solving)?

Is your organization unfamiliar with the process of hiring an ICT student for a work-term position?

Is your organization unable to hire work-term students due to a lack of funding?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, consider the Career Ready Program.

What is the Career Ready Program?

As part of the Government of Canada’s Student Work Integrated Learning Program, we are matching students with small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to help them on the path to a bright career. Current post-secondary students who are studying in the areas of Business Technology Management (BTM), Computer Science, Computer Systems Technology, Computer Engineering or alike programs qualify for the Career Ready program. ITAC works closely with the work term department staff at the post-secondary institutions to help students and employers bridge the school-to-work transition.

Low Investment/Risk Through Wage Subsidy Program

The program provides up to 50% (to a maximum of $5,000) of a work term student’s pay in wage subsidies to employers. Employers that hire students from underrepresented groups including women in STEM, indigenous students, recent immigrants, persons with disabilities, and first-year students may also qualify for additional funding (up to 70% or $7,000).

Deadlines

The deadline for applying to the Career Ready wage subsidy funding:

  • Summer 2018 work term (May – April) – Friday, April 27 2018
  • Fall 2018 work term (September – December) – Friday, Aug 17 2018
