CAHRC’s Growing Opportunities wage subsidy program supports agriculture employers as they hire post-secondary students for Work Integrated Learning (WIL) placements. Funding covers up to 50% of wages, unless you hire a student that is one of the following: a first-year student, woman in STEM, Indigenous student, newcomer to Canada, visible minority or persons with disabilities. In that case, funding covers up to 70% of wages.
Funded by the Government of Canada through the Student Work Placement Program, Growing Opportunities is available for registered Canadian businesses, start-ups, and not-for-profits related to the primary agriculture sector.
This is your opportunity to bring in new skills and play a part in growing the future of the AgriWorkforce. Placements are now available for both the Summer and Fall 2022 terms.
