Business, Labour & Community: Planning for Prosperity!

Dollars & Sense: A guide to employment services, tax and training credits, incentives and supports for employers


money-pensieve-man.jpg As an employer or HR professional, you may be interested in information on local employment services, tax credits, incentives or training supports to help your company with the financial costs of hiring and training new employees.

Such information is available, but until now it's been difficult to find since it's housed on a variety of websites and offered through different government sources. 

Workforce Planning Hamilton's Dollars & Sense Guide helps you cut through the confusion and provides a one-stop guide to local programs, as well as information on hiring youth for the summer, incentives for hiring apprentices, and finanical help for apprentices.
