This program provides meaningful employment for unemployed persons through the support of job creation initiatives.
Creating a healthy and robust job market is a top priority at ASD.
The Job Creation program helps employers achieve this by providing wage subsidies for employees in new positions, giving companies and organizations the flexibility to grow their workforce with confidence. This helps to create jobs, but also opportunities for the workers of Eeyou Istchee.
The Job Creation program provides wage subsidies to support the creation of new jobs that will improve the employability of participants and facilitate their successful integration into the labour market.
ASD encourages employers to hire and train new personnel by providing wage subsidies for a three year period, equal to:
Up to a maximum of $35,000 per year per participant.
Sometimes, just finding work can be a tough job.
Fortunately, the Job Creation program from ASD is helping employers to create new positions that will allow you to start building your experience and earning a pay-cheque.
By helping to cover the costs of your wages (up to 50%), ASD allows companies to provide more opportunities for employment. This gets you back into the job market where you can start to earn some money, and provide for yourself, your family and your future.
If you are having trouble finding work, tell your prospective employers about the Job Creation program – it might help them to create a job just for you.
