$3M Wage Subsidy Program to Provide Green Economy With Young STEM Talent


The green economy will look to continue its rapid growth through an infusion of talented youth as Canada begins to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic. To aid in this continued rise, BioTalent Canada announced today that Environment and Climate Change Canada has renewed its financial support of the Science Horizons Youth Internship Program. The $3M commitment will fund 103 internships.
Science Horizons provides employers in the environmental and clean-technology sector wage subsidies to hire recent post-secondary graduates. This renewal announcement comes weeks after BioTalent Canada released its report Growing the Bio-economy: Youth in Focus which highlights the success of Science Horizons.
The Science Horizons Youth Internship Program is a wage subsidy initiative to help recent graduates eligible to work in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) fields acquire work experience in fields linked to the green economy. To learn more visit biotalent.ca/sciencehorizons.
