You can transfer me your job offer(s) (PDF or Word document) so we can transfer it (them) to our network and help you to find the perfect candidate!
We also encourage you to find potential candidates on your own according to the program’s criteria (details below)
Confirm the candidate’s eligibility
Once you find an interesting candidate, he or her will just have to fill a short form to make sure that he/her is eligible to the program. It is really important that the candidate fill the form to receive Service Canada’s agreement before he/her start working for you (it usually takes between 24-48h to have an answer from Service Canada which is pretty fast).
Sign the agreement and get the grant!
Once the candidate is eligible, we just have to sign an agreement between you, us and the candidate and then we will pay you the wage subsidy each month upon receiving the candidate’s pay slips
