Youth Employment and Skills Program open to applicants

If you are looking to hire youth for agricultural jobs, you may be eligible to apply for support. But you’ll need to hurry.

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) has opened its Youth Employment and Skills Program to applicants.

The program offers subsidies for 50% of wages to a maximum of $14,000, with additional funding available to offset costs of employee relocation or the costs of barriers faced by eligible youth.

In order to be eligible, employers must offer agriculture career-related work experiences and skills in Canada. Employees need to be between the ages of 15 and 30, unemployed or underemployed, and a Canadian citizen, permanent resident of Canada or a refugee under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.

This program fills up fast. Those interested are encouraged to apply as soon as possible, as applications are reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Projects may start retroactively as early as April 15, 2021.
