Attention: Ongoing applications will begin March 1st, 2022

Final application date will be September 1st, 2022. 

 

Cumberland College has a long history of collaborating with a variety of community service organizations on projects designed to enhance our local labor market. Currently, Cumberland College is partnering with several organizations to deliver a work placement project that will provide an opportunity to reduce our regional unemployment rate, and meet the needs of employers in the region, many of whom have identified a demand for more employees.

Recent conversations with community partners revealed that most clients seeking employment in our local area are anxious to “jump right in”. There is a high preference for hands-on, learn-by-doing opportunities rather than structured classroom instruction on how to prepare for employment. These potential clients are eager to work and have expressed that all they really want is a chance to prove themselves. We believe that a direct placement into a paid work experience, with supports customized to every individual, is the ideal solution.    


Benefits and Expectations of a Work Placement
Cumberland College and its partnering agencies would like to work with local businesses to find participants full-time permanent employment, to reduce unemployment rates, and to stimulate the local economy, by offering wage subsidies for each work placement participant that a business undertakes. 
In addition to wage subsidies, the project helps match employers with trainable employees that are willing to demonstrate their work ethics, and this, in turn, reduces hiring risks, and limits uncertainties’ when training new employees.

Wage Subsidy
The work placement project will be held over a 4-month period, with the end goal of having the employer retain the participant as a full-time year-round employee.  Wage subsidies for each work placement participant will be set at the Saskatchewan minimum wage amount of $11.81/hour (not including MERCS and benefits), 40 hours/week, for 16 weeks (4 months), as follows:
1st month – 100% 
2nd month – 80% 
3rd and 4th month – 60% 
 

What to Expect
The work experience coordinator from Cumberland College will connect with local businesses, industry, and trade associations to identify and inventory current employment positions and create a bank of work placement opportunities. 

The coordinator will then meet with participants on an individual basis to begin the application process, and to seek solutions to resolve issues and overcome barriers identified by the applicant, by making referrals to appropriate supports such as employment readiness workshops or by facilitating the need to obtain a specific certification.

Work placement participants will then be matched with employers to begin the employment process. Regular communication with both employers and employees will be maintained throughout the placement, in order to promptly address any issues or concerns that the employer or employee may encounter.

The project coordinator will monitor the employee’s performance closely throughout the placement and will keep accurate records to coordinate the collection of documents necessary for the reimbursement of the wage subsidy for the employer.  Employers will be responsible for submitting pay stubs and proof of payment to the coordinator on a bi-weekly basis in order to receive reimbursement of wages.

New Employee Subsidy Opportunity - Employer

Partnerships:

Ministry of Immigration and Career Training

Northeast Newcomer Services

 

Overview:

Cumberland College and Settlement Services are collaborating to deliver a work placement project designed to enhance our local labor market and reduce our regional unemployment rate. Cumberland College and it’s partnering agencies, would like to work with local businesses by offering employers wage subsidies for every participant that receives full-time permanent employment. In addition to the employee wage subsidy, this project will provide employers with an opportunity to be matched with trainable employees, therefore reducing hiring risks and uncertainties that could potentially turn problematic when hiring new employees.

 

Wage subsidy:

The work placement project will be held over a 4-month period, with the end goal of having the employer retain the participant as a full-time year-round employee.

Wage subsidies for each work placement participant will be set at the Saskatchewan minimum wage amount of $11.81/hour (not including MERCS and benefits), 40 hours/week, for 16 weeks (4 months), decreasing contribution by 20% per hour for each of the first 3 months.

 

1st month – 100% @ $11.81/ hour x 160 hours.

2nd month – 80% @ $9.45/hour x 160 hours.

3rd and 4th month – 60% @ $7.09/hour x 320 hours.

Total wage subsidies per participant = $5,670.40

 

Please note that any wages above the Saskatchewan minimum wage amount of $11.81, Cumberland College will only be able to offer $11.81/hour per placement, and the employer will be responsible to cover the remaining wage amount.

 

Expectations:

The coordinator from Cumberland College will connect with local businesses, to identify current employment positions. The coordinator will then meet with participants on an individual basis to begin the application process.

Participants will then be matched with employers to begin the employment process. Regular communication with both employers and employees will be maintained throughout the placement, in order to promptly address any issues or concerns that the employer or employee may encounter.

The project coordinator will monitor the employee’s performance closely throughout the placement and will keep accurate records to coordinate the collection of documents necessary for the wage subsidy for the employer.

Employers will be responsible for submitting paystubs and proof of payment to the coordinator on a bi-weekly basis.
