Employers: This one’s for you!
Rupertsland Institute (RLI) can help employers find Métis workers that match current employment needs and is currently offering two wage subsidy programs to employers in Alberta:
- The Métis Youth Summer Placement Program (MYSPP) is designed to enhance employment opportunities for Métis youth between the ages of 15 and 30. The program offers a wage subsidy for employers who provide quality work experience to Métis youth during the summer months.
- The Métis Employment Partnerships Program (MEPP) is available for employers interested in hiring a Métis individual who requires assistance to secure or retain employment. The MEPP enhances the employability of Métis clients by providing employers a wage subsidy while the client acquires practical experience and on-the-job training.
Rupertsland Institute is committed to the safety of all Métis citizens and its employer partners – employers participating in these programs must demonstrate that they are providing a safe work environment and following all provincial and federal health and safety guidelines and legislation, including those set out for the COVID-19 pandemic.
