Hire a youth

Major changes to the CDAP youth placement program.

1) the hire no longer needs to be a student. They need to be between the ages of 18-30.

2) you can hire multiple eligible candidates to implement your digital plan and get $7300 back per job.

3) you can leverage the funds to support the implementation of digital tools with an existing employee.

Basic Framework of the CDAP Youth Hiring Program- $7300

You can receive up to $7,300 as a wage subsidy to hire a talented youth with the skills your business needs to achieve its digital adoption goals. You can apply for more than one wage subsidy to hire multiple youths.

This wage subsidy funding is administered by Magnet, Canada's only Digital Community Workforce System housed within the Toronto Metropolitan University. Through Magnet, you can connect to youth across more than 122 post-secondary institutions and receive personalized assistance with hiring the right talent for your business.


You're eligible if you have completed a digital adoption plan:

  • As part of CDAP and have received your grant payment OR

  • Under another recognized digital adoption program and submitted it to CDAP
