Wage Subsidy Program to hire Environmental Students
WELCOME TO ECO CANADA CO-OP FUNDING
Summer 2019 applications are now open and will remain open until March 11, 2019.
To employers who have participated in past-semesters, we will be conducting approvals as follows going forwards. We will leave applications open for 1 month (February 11 - March 11) and will be reviewing the applications all at once; approvals will be sent out by March 18 to those that have secured funding. All other applications will be added to our wait list.
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.
