Many countries around the world have job creation programs to help people find work. They are especially common during time of high unemployment.
Canada has many job creation programs at both the federal and provincial levels. At the federal level they are part of Humanresource devolopment corporation(HRDC). There are job creation programs for many groups such as students, fishers, and visible minorities.
The government's HRDC agency subsidizes organizations that offer eligible participants opportunities to maintain or enhance job skills. Through these work terms, which can last up to a year, participants gain recent work experience and network with other people. This increases the participants' chances of finding long-term employment.
