Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister has announced better support for charities and non-profits who have hired a student. He says the new non-profit summer student incentive is in addition to the previously announced summer student wage subsidy program. He explains charities and non-profit organizations will be eligible to receive six thousand additional dollars in financial assistance if they have hired at least one summer student under the summer student wage subsidy program. He says the online portal will be live on Tuesday June 16th and non-profits and charities have to show evidence of a summer student being hired and payment will be processed very soon thereafter. Pallister adds the first three thousand will be paid on confirmation of the first student being employed with the remaining three thousand paid at the end of the summer employment.
Under the previously announced wage subsidy program non-profits are eligible to receive up to 25 thousand dollars in support to hire five summer students.
