Career Focus Green Jobs | BioTalent Canada

Value: 50% to a maximum of $13,500


The Career Focus Green Jobs program is a wage subsidy program for employment opportunities that have a green mandate or any job with an employer that has an environmental focus. It helps knock down that cost barrier by covering the cost of a new graduate’s salary. Employers can bring on an eager, educated young worker for a special project – and at the end of the placement end up with a skilled candidate already oriented to their company.



To qualify as a green job either the job needs to have a green mandate or the employer needs to have an environmental focus. Green jobs are employment opportunities that meet the following criteria:

  • Help reduce the consumption of energy and raw materials
  • Limit greenhouse gas emissions
  • Minimize waste and pollution
  • Protect and restore ecosystems

Green jobs can also include employment opportunities in:

  • Non-profit environmental organizations
  • Solar and wind technology companies
  • Environmental science centers
  • Watershed and water resource agencies
  • Farms and farming co-ops
  • Conservation organizations
  • Museums and educational institutions
  • Waste management companies
  • Information technology companies


  • Be a graduate from a post-secondary institution within the last three years
  • Be between the ages of 15-30 (inclusive at the start of the placement)
  • Be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or hold refugee status
  • Be legally entitled to work according to the relevant provincial legislation and regulations
  • Not be in receipt of Employment Insurance at the start of your placement

Deadline: September 30, 2018 or until funds are fully dispersed.
