Provincial Government Programs for Employers offered by Employment Nova Scotia


START Program


The START Program encourages employers to hire Nova Scotians requiring work experience. Financial incentives can be provided to employers with a labour need willing to support ready-to-work Nova Scotians. Incentives will vary depending on the type of employment offered and the skill level of the employee.


Job Creation Partnership


The Job Creation Partnerships (JCP) is a program designed to support projects that will provide eligible participants with meaningful work experience that will improve their employment prospects. While project activities should benefit both the participant and the community, the focus of JCP is to aid participants in acquiring work experience that will assist them in finding full time employment.


Here is a list of programs funded by the Nova Scotia Department of Labour and Advanced Education
