Expanded Access for the BC Tech Co-op Grants Program

Summer 2016, Fall 2016, Spring 2017 term applications are currently open and accepting applications

BCIC has expanded the BC Tech Co-op Grants Program to make it even easier for BC companies to hire a co-op student. Even if you’re not a tech company, you can now receive $2,700 to subsidize the cost of hiring your co-op students.

What’s new?

The following program changes are effective as of February 1, 2016:

  • The BC Tech Co-op Grant is available to BC tech companies with 99 employees or less (formerly it was less than 50 employees)
  • Non-profit organizations in the technology sector are now eligible.
  • Non-tech companies that hire a co-op student in a tech role are now eligible.
  • All grants are now valued at $2,700.
  • Companies can now get grants for subsequent terms for co-op students hired longer than 4 months, which was not possible before.
  • There’s no longer a limitation of two grants per company per term; companies are limited to 4 grants per year.
