Get Youth Working Program

New Funding available for the Get Youth Working Program

The Program, funded by the Government of Canada through the Canada-British Columbia Job Fund, offers employers a $2,800 wage subsidy to hire and train eligible youth 15 to 29 years of age.  The funding helps BC Youth improve existing skills and gain new ones through practical experience and on-the-job-training. Under the current program funding stream, funding is still available but applications can only be accepted until June 30th, 2016.

No complicated paperwork!  Employers conduct their own recruiting and at any time during the recruiting process they may apply for the funding.  The approval process is quick and easy. If the employer and proposed new hire meet the program criteria, they are eligible for the funding.
