Summer Temporary Employment Program (STEP)
STEP is back to help employers hire students
STEP is a 4 - 16 week wage subsidy program that provides funding to eligible Alberta employers to hire high school or post-secondary students into summer jobs from May to August. Summer positions created through STEP provide students with the opportunity to build meaningful work experience, increase their skills and workplace insight and help prepare them for the future.
A standardized wage subsidy of $7.00/hour to a maximum of 37.5 hours/week will be provided to approved applicants.
As of January 4, 2018 STEP is now accepting applications for 2018. The application deadline is February 9, 2018.
