With 80% of the cost of a summer student’s wages* subsidized by Tewatohnhi’saktha, there’s no reason NOT to hire through the KSSEP!
The goal of the KSSEP is to provide a QUALITY work experience for youth, and expose them to the labour market from an early age. Applications for your funding to hire a summer student are accepted and approved during the spring each year, so don’t let this opportunity pass you by.
Please see our KSSEP Employer Guidelines (PDF) for full details on salary levels, employer contribution requirements, and quality work experience components of the KSSEP.
KSSEP Professional & Personal Development Workshops
Professional and Personal Development Workshops will also be offered to students who obtain employment. These workshops are meant to enhance the student’s employment experience and to increase their opportunities for future employment.
The workshops will be held at Tewatohnhi’saktha, located on the third floor of the Kahnawà:ke Business Complex. Details relating to session topics and schedules will be available when employers and students sign their contracts.
These workshops count as hours worked when attended. Employers will be notified of students’ enrollment and will be required to ensure that they are able to attend.
It is mandatory for students to attend at least one workshop.
