2022 Jobs Program: Tech Company Application
Please fill out this application form as best as you can. We recommend that you read all sections before responding to the questions.
Technology Alberta's Jobs Programs grants/vouchers are provided to growing entrepreneurial SME companies that have tech products. This program is for Alberta companies and residents as it is funded by the Government of Alberta (often in conjunction with Government of Canada).
Many companies consider the NExT Level intern opportunity as "Try-out potential new employee fit" or a "Paid-working interview" or "Paying for new employee training". Whatever the case, thank you to you and your company for providing Alberta residents exciting opportunities to work in Alberta's growing Tech Sector.
Technology Alberta will quickly:
- review your application form (usually in 1 to 2 business days)
- offer to post your job description
- provide you opportunities to interview from our Alberta-wide access to Talent (applicants will apply to your posting - or you can find your own talent. We have strong access to Alberta Technical talent, and are growing our networks for Business Talent)
You then offer your desired candidate your funded-position, and they can start work under mutually agreeable timing. Most employers take them on as a contractor, managing all standard paperwork - as per their company's practices.
Note: Many companies have been able to secure talent for their position within 1 week of program acceptance.
