Wage Subsidy Program to hire Environmental Students
WELCOME TO ECO CANADA CO-OP FUNDING
Applications for the Winter 2019 semester are now CLOSED. We will be reviewing applications between November 15 and 19.
To employers that have participated in past-semesters, we will be conducting approvals a bit differently this term. We will leave applications open for 1 month (October 15 - November 15) and will be reviewing the applications all at once; approvals will be sent out by November 17th to those that have secured funding.
ECO Canada's new CO-OP Program provides a wage subsidy of up to 50% to a maximum of $5000 to employers hiring students in an environmental role.
As part of Canada's Work-Integrated Learning strategy, we are matching students with employers in the environmental sector to help them on the path to a bright career.
Interested in applying? Complete the form and our team will review your application within 10 business days.
