This Week's Highlights

SMUBDC in partnership with Service Canada is offering businesses up to $9,000 in wage subsidies for hiring new graduates.

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

In partnership with the Government of Canada, the Saint Mary’s University Business Development Centre is offering approximately $9,000 in wage subsidies to each business that hires a recent graduate through Work Smarts.

Work Smarts is an employment program recently launched throughout Atlantic Canada. The Saint Mary’s University Business Development Centre provides post-secondary graduates with their first position in their chosen field at a dramatically subsidized rate for participating employers. The program is accepting positions from employers now and as such felt that you might be interested in growing your business with the assistance the subsidy provides.

Work Smarts offers a significant salary subsidy (based on a 35 hr week), along with coverage of MERCs (Mandatory Employment Related Costs – CPP, EI, VP – an additional 11.51%); employers contribute a salary top-up, ensuring graduates begin their careers with a competitive entry-level salary. The program also provides training for participating graduates, along with support and guidance for participants and employers alike. The Saint Mary’s University Business Development Centre will take care of posting your position and will monitor incoming applications to shortlist qualified candidates.

If you have any questions or would like to know more about the program please contact us at (902) 429-2992 or by email at worksmarts@smu.ca. The deadline for placement start dates is June 3rd, 2013, so please act now if you are interested.
