Group 3: What incentives could be offered to encourage Canadians

Group 3: What incentives could be offered to encourage Canadians (including low-income, underemployed or unemployed people) to move for work?

Employers/employee incentives may include the following:

-          Student loan “flexibility”

-          Relationships with education facilities

-          Program alignment with industry.

-          Increase the attractiveness to young people, youth and those willing to work make a connection with them to build and improve career growth by moving to remote locations.

-          Remove provincial barriers such as licences and designation processes, these are barriers for those with the skills to be able to move to remote locations or inter-provincially for jobs.

-          Improve and build long term relations with employer and employees who work remotely.

-          Improve employee-employer contract issues short vs. long term employee contracts for work.

We need to explore what other jurisdictions are doing in this regard. Australia has experimented with some incentives for relocation from areas of high unemployment to areas with job vacancies, through that country's social security systems.
