Wage Subsidy Programs

Help shape the next generation of Canada’s mining workforce


MiHR’s wage subsidy programs benefit youth, post-secondary students, mining workers and employers. They help recruit, retain and develop the workforce by enabling mining employers to provide work opportunities to build competency in new talent, allow workers to practice newly acquired skills on the job, and expand the skilled labour pool for industry to meet labour demands. 

Gearing Up

Offers wage subsidies up to $7,000 to mining employers that create work opportunities for post-secondary students enrolled in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) or business programs. Includes co-op placements, internships, field placements or applied projects.
