Funding Available for Local Employers Who Hire Recent Graduates


Sault College Employment Solutions is calling all Sault Ste. Marie and area employers in the Forestry, Aviation, Information Technology, Healthcare or Skilled Trades sectors, to participate in the Graduate Employment Program. Through this amazing opportunity employers who hire a recent graduate for a full-time permanent position can receive between $6,370 and $18,000 to offset training costs.

After graduation, graduates often struggle to get their foot in the door. This program breaks down the no experience barrier and provides an opportunity for graduates to gain experience while employers gain a highly skilled and trained employee.

The Graduate Employment Program launched at the end of August and will conclude at the end of November. Space and time is limited. Interested employers and graduates wishing to participate in the program should contact Employment Solutions immediately.

For full details of the program, please call Employment Solutions at 705-945-0705 or visit the Employment Solutions office in the Station Tower, 421 Bay St, 4th floor.

This program is funded by the federal government, through the Youth Employment Strategy.
