Incentives

Information about wage incentives

Our team of employment professionals can meet with you to determine if your business is eligible for wage incentives. These are provided to employers to offset some training expenses related to hiring our clients.

Incentives are negotiated between our team and the employer directly. Amounts may range from $1,500 to a maximum of $8,000, with a maximum duration of 52 weeks, depending on a variety of factors. Our team also provides mentoring and job retention services for our clients to ensure success throughout the training program and beyond.

Canada-Ontario Job Grant

The Canada-Ontario Job Grant provides direct financial support to individual employers who wish to purchase training for their employees. Employers choose the individuals they would like to have trained and the training that meets their workforce development needs.

Apprenticeship

Skilled trades are in demand

Skill shortages are a persistent problem in the labour market in Canada. The high number of skilled trades people who will be retiring within the next decade will only make the problem worse. This has serious implications in terms of labour market productivity, growth and competitiveness at home and abroad. We are here to assist employers in accessing skilled candidates interested in apprenticeship. We also administer the Apprenticeship Signing Bonus. A $2,000 apprenticeship signing bonus is available to employers to hire, register and train an apprentice.

For more information and eligibility requirements please contact us.
