Are hiring costs preventing you from employing more staff?
We can help you access government-funded wage and training subsidies designed to help employers like you. There are a number of of federal and provincial programs to help offset your costs. For instance, if you hire an apprentice and register him/her while receiving a wage subsidy, you may be eligible for an additional hiring incentive of up to $2,000. This is in addition to the incentives offered by the Apprenticeship program through the Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities and Ontario College of Trades. The experienced team at Employment + Education Centre will help you determine your eligibility as well as guide you through the process. Since 1985, we have been helping business owners in Leeds and Grenville hire and retain the right talent.

Hiring time and costs are often the biggest obstacles to finding the right employees. Studies estimate that recruiting for an entry level minimum wage position can cost employers over $1,000. Once hired, you have the additional expense of training the new employee resulting in stalled productivity and revenue. At the Employment + Education Centre, we have extensive resources to help you find, hire and retain your next candidate. Employers in Leeds and Grenville also rely on us for expert assistance with wage and training subsidies to meet their hiring costs.
