Helping You Get There
Unlike those generic employment websites catering to all industries, the ECO Canada Job Board caters to environmental professionals exclusively. This online tool is excellent for job seekers and employers alike. It’s where resumes are posted, and many hiring managers check first! There are potentially hundreds of jobs posted online at any given moment.
Training & Wage Subsidies
Due to the popularity and growth of environmental work in Canada, the job market is becoming increasingly competitive. But, with the right subsidy, more companies are willing to invest their time in training candidates even with less experience.
ECO’s wage funding programs presents a range of opportunities for professionals just starting their career! You’ll find everything from scholarships to work placements (and the eligibility requirements for each).
