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.
