Each employer is eligible to receive a maximum of four grants each per fiscal year valued at $2,700 (a total value of $10,800), to recruit and train between one to four distinct co-op students. The employer must pay the remainder of the student’s salary during the co-op term.

Eligible companies must:

  • Be a BC-based business
  • Have less than 100 employees on payroll
  • Be a tech company hiring for any role
