The province’s Graduate to Opportunity program helps small businesses hire recent university and college graduates by providing salary support for the first two years of employment – 25% the first year, 12.5% the second year, for new jobs paying at least $30,000.

The process is quick and easy:  complete applications are normally approved within days.

It’s available to companies of 100 employees or less, start-ups, non-profits and social enterprises.

Employers say the financial incentive is making a real difference and their recent grads are bringing enthusiasm, creativity and skill to the workplace.
