Co-operative Employment Program

The Co-operative Employment Program and the Private Sector Research and Development Co-operative Program have been combined to create the Strategic Co-operative Education Incentive.

The Co-operative Employment Program provides educational opportunities for post-secondary co-op students. Eligible employers must hire a student from an approved co-op program and are reimbursed by the Nova Scotia Economic Development for part of the student's wages.

Government-funded organizations; municipal governments, and non-profit organizations in Nova Scotia are eligible.

Students must be registered in a Nova Scotia post-secondary co-operative education program.
