Employment Placement Incentives

Placement Incentives

Funding may be available for employers who hire an OW/ODSP recipient. Our Job Development team connects with employers to learn about their business and provide qualified and skilled candidates that meet their unique needs

This funding exists to offset the costs of any extra supervision or training that may be required.

Employers may be eligible for funding for up to six months to help offset their costs or to purchase job-related training when they hire people who are in receipt of OW/ODSP.

We can also cover the costs of Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) coverage during the training period. Any claim will not affect the Employer's WSIB experience rating or premiums.
