The federal government is providing wage subsidies to encourage the hiring of students with disabilities.

The deadline for employers to submit an application for a subsidy from Human Resources Development Canada is March 28 (April 4 for the Northwest Territories and Nunavut).

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.
