Tax credits & funding
80% of employers receive funding that can cover up to 40% of a student's salary and training!
The Quebec government allows certain Quebec-based companies to claim a percentage of a student's salary and training costs. Students must be in a government recognized internship program. If your company is eligible, any student that you work with through co-op will be eligible to a tax credit.
For more information, visit Revenue Quebec's website or call 1-800-567-4692.
