The deadline for employers to submit an application for a wage subsidy from Human Resources Development Canada to hire a student is March 28, except for the Northwest Territories and Nunavut where the deadline is April 4.

HRDC’s Summer Career Placements program offers wage subsidies to employers in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors to create jobs related to students’ career interests and their fields of study.

“We all know how imperative it is to prepare tomorrow’s workforce,” said Jane Stewart, Minister of HRDC. “Through these incentives and with the help of employers from all sectors of the economy, we are increasing the chance for our students to build their careers while they are developing the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the future.”
