START Program- financial incentive
The START Program, a program of Employment NS, will encourage employers to hire Nova Scotians requiring work experience and to register and employ apprentices.
Financial incentives may be provided to employers with a labour need willing to support ready-to-work Nova Scotians. Incentives will vary depending upon the type of employment offered, the skill level of the employee and may include a retention bonus of $500 per job opportunity. How do I apply?
- Organization applications can be submitted online using the Lampss system and will be reviewed by ENS staff. Application assistance will be provided to employers by ENS when required.
