New fund helps printers pay new hires
OTTAWA—The Canadian Printing Industries Sector Council (CPISC) has received $651,000 to fund a new program called Career Focus, which will subsidize the salaries of up to 13 new hires at printing companies in its first year.
Employers that qualify for the funding will receive a subsidy representing one third of the new employee’s total wage, up to a maximum of $12,750 for up to 12 months.

Eligibility criteria include: must be aged between 15 and 30; must be a post-secondary graduate and out of school; and, must not be receiving EI benefits during the period of employment. Employers must also guarantee four months of continuous employment for a minimum of 30 hours per week and must help the new hire develop skills identified in the CPISC national Skill Standards.

All applications will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis. However if the program is over-subscribed, CPISC will give priority to those applicants who plan to provide opportunities to members of under-represented groups (i.e. women, Aboriginals, people from immigrant groups).
