Program Information

Summer Temporary Employment Program (STEP)


STEP is a 4-16 week program that provides a wage subsidy of $7 per hour to employers to hire current or returning high school or post-secondary students into summer jobs from May to August.  STEP supports students in obtaining employment by helping them gain work experience, improve their job readiness, build transferable skills, and provide career awareness. Municipalities are eligible for STEP funding. For more information, please visit the website using the link above.

STEP 2017 is now closed. Applications for the 2018 period will open in the new year.
