Frequently Asked Questions

Employers who hire and train students as part of an approved co-op program can access up to $7,000 in wage subsidy funding through the Government of Canada’s Student Work Placement Program (SWPP).

If your business is eligible for the Boost Your Business Technology Grant through the federal Canada Digital Adoption Program (CDAP), you can access up to $7,300 in wage subsidy funding when hiring a youth to help your business achieve its digital goals.

Magnet can help eligible employers identify and hire youth talent in order to take advantage of these wage subsidies. For employers who have already hired eligible youth, you can still use the platform to complete your wage subsidy application and receive funding.
