Have You Heard About Wage Subsidies?

Designed to benefit both employers and job seekers, Wage Subsidy Programs provide financial support to employers by covering a portion of an employees wage as they receive on the job training and gain new skills. 

Using a wage subsidy not only covers a portion of the wages, but can:

  • reduce work-related barriers for an employee with a disability, or with complex work related needs
  • reduce the overall costs of bringing on a new employee
  • help an employer fill needed positions

Contact us at 250-286-3441 or toll free 1-866-286-6788 for more information.

Labour Market Information

For a job seeker, labour market information provides valuable insights into job opportunities, salaries, and industry trends, helping individuals make informed decisions about their careers. Accurate labour market information serves as a compass for navigating the job market, enabling individuals to make choices that align with their goals and aspirations, ultimately contributing to personal and financial well-being.

For employers, it provides valuable insights into the current state of the workforce, allowing them to make informed decisions about recruitment, retention, and overall workforce planning. By understanding the supply and demand for specific skills, employers can tailor their hiring strategies to attract qualified candidates and address potential talent shortages. LMI also helps businesses stay competitive by staying informed about industry trends, salary benchmarks, and emerging skills. This knowledge enables employers to create competitive compensation packages, identify areas for employee development, and make strategic decisions to ensure their workforce aligns with the demands of the market. Ultimately, having access to labour market information allows employers to adapt and thrive in a dynamic and ever-changing business environment.
