Skills Link Program (SLP)

“The Skills Link program helps youth overcome barriers to employment, develop a broad range of skills and knowledge
in order to participate in the current and future labour market and to promote education and skills as
being key to labour market participation.”

Eligible participants are youth aged 15-30 who are out of school, unemployed or underemployed.

Skills Link Objectives:
  • Wage subsidies for work placements in a mentored environment for youth who are not in school to enable them to develop employability skills and support their educational and career development;
  • Training experiences that support youth in acquiring skills needed for work placements.
  • Support for local businesses with their recruitment needs and succession planning.
