  • Wage subsidy programs to cover wage and training costs

"I've had the pleasure of working with Youth Opportunities Unlimited for over 7 years. In that time, I've worked with dozens of fantastic associates who have come out of different YOU programs and have thrived both in work and social setting, after being given a work placement. Some of our company's best workers are currently from various subsidy programs offered by YOU in years past. the YOU staff (Business Liaisons and Job Placement Specialists) are kind, and the communication is always prompt and professional. Based on my great continued success with this program, I'd highly suggest it to any employers seeking motivated youth looking for an opportunity." - Luca, General Manager of Pizza Projekt
