The Canadian Supply Chain Sector Council (CSCSC) is set to launch the second year of its Career Focus Program, and it is making money available to help employers hire young recruits.

Through the program, companies can apply for funds to hire post-secondary graduates under the age of 30. The money—up to $12,750 per employee—is meant to offset the costs of developing the skills and experience of new employees intent on pursuing careers in supply chain.

Year two of the program starts with the CSCSC’s fiscal year on April 1, 2010.

Any companies with vacancies in supply chain roles are eligible for the subsidy; applications will be assessed on a first-come, first-served basis.

If approved, the employer must submit proof of wages paid to the CSCSC each pay period.
