Employers in clean tech, digital tech, natural resources, as well as those that support Canada’s Sustainable Development Goal efforts can benefit from this program.
The Supportive Care Assistant Program is part of a national initiative to strengthen the long-term care sector. The program was designed to attract and rapidly train new workers for the sector by providing free online training and a paid work placement. Employers receive a wage subsidy to welcome trainees into their workplaces.
Career Launcher is a program by Colleges and Institutes Canada, funded by the Government of Canada.
“Colleges and Institutes Canada’s Career-Launcher Internships program have enabled Sea Smart to grow our team and deepen our impact by hiring qualified interns who we would not have been able to hire without this critical funding. We are so grateful to Colleges and Institutes Canada for their generous support and also increasing employment opportunities for youth. I highly recommend other organizations to apply”
