Work Smarts


The Sobey School Business Development Centre (SSBDC) is pleased to provide federal wage subsidies to 40 employers throughout Atlantic Canada and 45 employers in rural Nova Scotia to hire recent graduates. From May 2016- March 2017, the SSBDC is currently coordinating the Work Smarts program in partnership with Service Canada. Through this program, we provide a wage subsidy to employers to hire a recent graduate. Last year, we placed 40 recent graduates in career related positions with small and medium enterprises. Through Service Canada, we have been able to offer each employer in the program up to $11,000 in funding to help grow their business while providing valuable experience to new graduates.
