EMPLOYING YOUNG TALENT INCENTIVE (EYTI)
Ontario’s new Employing Young Talent Incentive (EYTI) is being offered to small businesses (fewer than 100 employees) who hire and retain youth 15 to 29 years old through Employment Service.
How it works:
An employer will benefit from hiring a young person. Through the Employing Young Talent Incentive, an employer will receive incentives of $1,000 to $2,000 as follows:
For Employment Service (ES)-assisted youth clients matched with a small business (less than 100 employees) between January 1, 2018, and March 31, 2018, the employer will receive a $1,000 retention payment at three months followed by a $1,000 retention payment at six months.
For ES-assisted youth clients matched with a small business after April 1, 2018, the employer will receive $1,000 upon hiring, followed by an additional $1,000 retention payment at six months in the job.
To be eligible to receive the EYTI benefit for hiring a young person, the employer must:
- prove they are licensed to operate in Ontario
- comply with workplace, human rights and labour legislation
- have workplace safety and liability insurance
- offer job opportunities taking place in Ontario
YOUTH JOB LINK (YJL)
Youth Job Link is designed to help youth, including students, aged 15 to 29, who have never worked before and who do not face significant barriers to employment plan their careers and transition to the labour market.
Youth Job Link provides three categories of non-intensive employment services, each of which is available year-round. They are: career exploration services to increase knowledge of career options and support career decision-making; career management services to improve readiness for the labour market; and, job search, readiness and matching assistance to connect youth with employers offering employment opportunities, including summer jobs.
In some cases, YJL can also offer individual supports and employer training supports to offset the costs of on-the-job-training, new employee orientation, and other hiring-related expenses up to a maximum of $300 per individual.
Get skills-training and financial support when you qualify for Second Career. You can get new skills – those needed for jobs in demand now – and financial support when you qualify.
Apply for up to $28,000 for costs including:
- Manuals and workbooks
- Other instructional costs
- Basic living allowance (max. $410/week)
As a start, you qualify for Second Career when:
You have been laid off and have not been working
You have been laid off and are working a temporary job just to cover costs
If you’re receiving Employment Insurance (EI), or have in the past, you can still apply.
