New Funding for Career Focus Program

June 07, 2010

The Canadian Printing Industries Sector Council (CPISC) has received additional funding to support seven more printing-industry hires in its Career Focus subsidy program, which began two years ago.
Under the program, employers who meet the eligibility criteria established by the Government of Canada will be required to guarantee a minimum of four months of continuous employment for a new or recent graduate, who must work for at least 30 hours per week.  In return, employers will receive a subsidy representing one third of a new employee's total wage, up to a maximum of $12,750 per employee.

While CPISC began year two of its Career Focus program in April, the organization is now accepting new applications for this round of funding on a first-come, first-served basis.

At the time of the program’s July 2009 introduction, CPISC received a $651,000 government grant to run Career Focus over three years.
