TARGETED WAGE SUBSIDY PROGRAM

TARGETED WAGE SUBSIDY PROGRAM 

 

The Targeted Wage Subsidy Program provides subsidized wages of individuals whom employers would not ordinarily hire to provide them with direct work experience or on-the-job training. Clients are offered short term work placements while on assistance to work placements to garner work experience and acquire work skills in both in and out of office settings and work sites.
