Last summer, almost 1400 employers benefited from the Summer Temporary Employment Program (STEP) by providing about 3000 students with valuable work experience.
This summer, give your workforce a boost by hiring a STEP student. Providing a student with meaningful work experience helps bridge the gap between education and the workplace, and sets them up for success in the future. If you are eligible and approved, STEP offers a wage subsidy grant of $7 per hour.
Applications are being accepted now until February 9, 2018. This is a popular program so apply early. Check the applicant guidelines and download forms at AlbertaCanada.com/STEP.
