Hiring a Post Secondary Graduate


Elaine Holding on May 3, 2016 in Advice for Business Owners

There are many government programs out there to help businesses. However, it can be frustrating trying to figure out what is out there, whether you qualify and how to find the documents. One program that may be of interest is the Youth Employment Program through the National Research Council’s Industrial Research Assistance Program. Details are below.

The NRC Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP) delivers its Youth Employment Program under Youth Employment Strategy and provides small and medium-sized enterprises with financial assistance to hire highly skilled post-secondary graduates. Small and medium-sized enterprises benefit from the knowledge of freshly minted minds while graduates gain valuable work experience that will open doors to the future.

This Program provides financial assistance to innovative small and medium-sized enterprises in Canada to hire post-secondary science, engineering, technology, business and liberal arts graduates. Graduates work on innovative projects within the small and medium-sized enterprise environment and may participate in research, development and commercialization of technologies.
