The Employing Young Talent Incentive (EYTI) provides employers with up to $2,000 for hiring and retaining youth.
To qualify for the Employing Young Talent Incentive, employers must:
- Have fewer than 100 employees, full and part-time combined, counted at the point the youth will be hired
- Hire a youth between the ages of 15-29 in a position that averages a minimum of 20 hours/week
- Retain the youth in a position that continues to average a minimum of 20 hours/week
- Be licensed to operate in Ontario and provide the job in Ontario
Hire a youth for a minimum of 20 hours/week = $1000.00 Retain the youth for 6 months (min. 20 hours/week) = $1000.00
Total incentive received = $2000.00
