Programs

Whether you are building a team or looking to add talent to an expanding project, you know that hiring decisions are among the most difficult and important choices you make. Métis Employment Services (MES) have a talent pool of potential candidates that may match the needs of your business.

MTE Programs can help support the cost to employers of providing work experience and one- on- one on the job training, that supplements the skills qualified Métis individuals bring to your workplace.

Métis Targeted Wage Subsidies (TWS)

This Program is open to employers who provide direct work experience and practical on-the-job training to Métis people who have the required skills and accreditation, but lack related work experience.

Under the Métis Targeted Wage Subsidies Program, employers can access a subsidy of up to 50% of the employee’s wages for a maximum of six months (or one year for a person with a disability). The employer must commit to hiring the trainee at the conclusion of the subsidy period.

Métis Youth Career Internship Program

The Métis Youth Career Internship Program is available to employers who can provide career related work experience to Métis youth (ages 15 to 30) who have completed secondary school or post secondary training.

Employers can access a wage subsidy of up to 50% of the employee’s wages for a period of up to six months. The employer must commit to hiring the trainee at the conclusion of the subsidy period.

Métis Youth Summer Employment Program

This Program is available to employers who hire a Métis youth, between the ages of 15 to 30 during the summer months. The job must be for minimum period of six and a maximum of sixteen consecutive weeks between May and August, and the client must intend to return to school in September.

Employers can receive a subsidy of 50% of the wages paid to the employee to a maximum contribution by the program to equal the provincial minimum wage.
