Wage subsidies available to employers in Ontario.

The Canadian Apparel Federation (CAF) has received government funding to make available wage subsidies for employers in the apparel industry in Ontario. The program provides support for hiring new employees, aged 18-30.

The program is easy to apply for and we can provide confirmation of support within days.  Key features of the program include:
  • The maximum subsidy is $11,375 per employee.
  • These subsidies are available to newly-hired employees  - aged 18 to 30.
  • The subsidies cover half of the wages of a new hire for up to six months.
  • Employers complete their normal recruitment process, but the subsidy must be confirmed prior to hiring.
Companies that are in the process of hiring new employees should contact us immediately to take advantage of this opportunity. Most of the available subsidies have already been committed.  We have a small number still available and we want to allocate all the remaining subsidies by the end of August. CAF members are given preference.

More details on the program are available here.
