CLOSING SOON – SUMMER STUDENT GRANT

CLOSING SOON – SUMMER STUDENT GRANT

studentgrant01

Just a reminder to those of you who have not yet applied for the Canada Summer Jobs program – the deadline of February 26 is fast approaching.

Canada Summer Jobs provides wage subsidies for hiring summer students, reimbursing 50% of provincial minimum wage for each full-time work placement up to 16 weeks in duration. This federal funding program is open to private sector employers with 50 or fewer full-time employees in Canada, offering meaningful career-related work experience for current students.

There are countless ways in which a student hire could be of benefit to your business.

For example, if your company claims SR&ED tax credits, why not hire a student to help with the documentation of your R&D projects? RDP has always maintained that proper documentation is key to a successful SR&ED claim, and having a dedicated summer student on the task each year can go a long way to smoothing the claim process with CRA.

Don’t miss out on this valuable opportunity to add young talent to your business at minimal cost.

To find out more about this and how RDP can help your company apply for government funding, please contact Paul Anderson at (416) 368-9341 x299 or email panderson@rdpassociates.com
