Comments on Funding:
Funding is a wage subsidy that ranges from 50-70% (up to $5,000-$7,000).
Partial government funds from provincial, territorial, or municipal sources are permitted.
Placements can be partially government-funded, but only funds from non-governmental sources can be subsidized under this program (i.e., a position paid with 60% provincial grant funding is only eligible for a 40% subsidy of the non-governmental funds from the employer). An employer must disclose if, and by how much, government sources are partially funding the placement.
