The application portal for Manitoba’s Healthy Hire Jobs Grant program is now open. Under the program, local employers can apply for up to $50,000 in provincial support to help cover the wages of new and former employees who can attest they have been vaccinated, or intend to be vaccinated or are unable to be vaccinated. Eligible employers will receive a grant equivalent to 50% of wages for a maximum of 10 employees, with a maximum of $5,000 per employee.
The wage support covers full pay periods for employees hired retroactively to June 10, with the last pay period ending October 15, 2021. Almost 80% of Manitobans 12+ have now received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
