January 5, 2018
AB Gov News Release

Alberta students will get a leg up in their careers through the Summer Temporary Employment Program (STEP).

The province’s economy is improving and the government wants to make sure all Albertans benefit from the recovery, including students and employers. STEP gives students the opportunity to develop important skills while helping employers hire the staff they need.

Applications are now being accepted for STEP from employers who want to hire students for summer work between May and August. Eligible employers will get a $7-per-hour wage subsidy.
