Metis Targeted Wage Subsidy

Have you ever felt that “I know how to do the job but no one wants to give me a chance?” If so then the Métis Targeted Wage Subsidy Program is for you. The TWS Program helps Métis individuals who have the required skills for a job but haven’t been able to obtain one due to a lack of work experience in the field.

You will need to find an employer who is willing to provide you with direct work experience and practical on the job training related to your skills. If you don’t have one lined up, your local MES may be able to help you find a suitable employer. Financial support for the employer can include a wage subsidy of up to 50% of your wages for a maximum of six months (or one year in the case of a person with disabilities). In exchange, the employer must agree to provide you with full time employment at the conclusion of the subsidy period.
