For new graduates trying to enter the job market for the first time, having the experience expected by potential employers can be a real problem when looking for their first jobs.
The Cree Graduate program will provide wage subsidies for recent graduates, up to $40,000.00 per year. This gives employers the freedom to hire JBNQA beneficiaries and help them build their resumes and skills by providing the opportunity to gain their first professional work experience.
ASD will assist organizations by providing wage subsidies for eligible participants.
The Cree Graduate program is intended to incentivize the hiring of recent graduates by helping to assume the expense of hiring, on-boarding and training individuals that have yet to accumulate a body of professional experience.
