Career Focus Green Jobs | BioTalent Canada:

Value

50% to a maximum of $13,500

Description

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.

  • Protect and restore ecosystems
