Metis Targeted Wage Subsidy Program

If you have skills but lack work experience in your area of interest, and need an employer to give you a chance, the Rupertsland Institute can help with their Metis Targeted Wage Subsidy program.

They give your employer a wage subsidy of up to 50% of your wages for a maximum of six months (or one year in the case of a person with disabilities). In exchange, the employer must agree to provide you with full time employment at the conclusion of the subsidy period.

You will need to find an employer who is willing to provide you with direct work experience and practical on the job training related to your skills. If you don’t have one lined up, your local MES may be able to help you find a suitable employer.

Very cool!
