Opportunities for youth in rural areas, remote communities, or official language minority communities.

Opportunities offered by organizations that focus on protecting and conserving the environment.

Opportunities for youth to work in small businesses, in recognition of their contribution to the creation of jobs.

Not-for-profit employers can receive funding for up to 100 per cent of the provincial minimum hourly wage and mandatory employment-related costs.

Small businesses with 50 or fewer employees and public-sector employers can receive funding for up to 50 per cent of the provincial minimum hourly wage.
