CHANGES MAKE IT EASIER FOR MORE  BUSINESSES TO ACCESS WAGE SUBSIDY

Many businesses will be re-hiring as the economy opens up again. The provincial government has made some changes to their wage subsidy program which make more businesses, and people able to access it. 

In this short webinar, in partnership with Work BC Alberto Archevala and our Connections Program lead Nimmi Bangert, we will go through the changes and let you know exactly what you need to successfully apply.

We will also share how you can access support every step of the way. Two key changes that are important to understand are:

  1. New hires no longer need to be on EI to access
  2. it is ok to have a pre-existing relationship

That means that restaurants who want to rehire staff that have been laid off would be eligible for the program. Join us to learn the restrictions and get your questions answered.
