Hiring a youth apprentice makes good business sense. The Provincial and Federal governments provide income tax credits for employers of apprentices registered in SkilledTradesBC apprenticeship programs.
As an employer sponsor you can:
Claim 10% of eligible apprentice wages per year for Red Seal trades
Get $1.47* back for every $1 you invest in apprenticeship training
Claim 20% of eligible apprentice wages per year for non-Red Seal trades
