Local businesses may be eligible for up to $7,500 in wage subsidies and have access to nationwide student recruitment through The Chamber Partnership.
The Chamber Partnership Initiative brings together local chambers of commerce and boards of trade, small and medium-sized enterprises, job seekers, and post-secondary institutions to support economic recovery and opportunities for student job seekers across Canada.
The Simcoe and District Chamber of Commerce is among the local chambers and boards partnering with Magnet and the Talent Opportunity Program to connect chamber members to the Magnet platform, a digital social enterprise at Ryerson University.
The key to the partnership is connecting businesses of all sizes and industries to opportunities to hire young talent and access wage subsidies through the Student Work Placement Program. Funded by the Government of Canada, SWPP allows employers to access wage subsidies of up to $7,500 when they hire Canadian post-secondary students for work integrated learning experiences.
The Chamber Partnership Initiative will support access to the following key features through Magnet’s platform:
