Posted: Feb 6, 2018

Check out the Energy Training Program to hire for the summer team! 

Energy Training Program

Hire a student or recent graduate for a summer work term in the energy sector and the Government of Nova Scotia will cover part of their wages. Learn how.

The Energy Training Program helps postsecondary students and recent graduates get work experience in the energy sector with a hiring incentive for local businesses. Employers receive up to 50% (up to $7.50 an hour) of the student or graduate’s wages for a 12 to 17-week work term.

The 2018 funding period is from April 30 to August 24. Employers can hire co-op students, non co-op students and recent graduates. Co-op students must start work by May 21, and others must start by June 4.

Who can apply

This program is available to businesses with up to 500 employees operating in Nova Scotia. Businesses must have a direct connection to the energy sector.

Employers must provide work experience that’s directly related to the student’s field of study. Work term positions must pay at least the legal minimum wage, plus 4% vacation pay.
Larger local companies may be considered for the program if funding levels allow. Before you apply, read the full program guidelines to make sure your business is eligible.

How to apply

Submit the application form by February 23.
Applications are processed as they’re received, so employers are encouraged to apply early. If you have questions about the program or the application, contact Leanne Tremblay at 902 424-5447.

Deadline for applications is February 23rd, 2018.
