NEW Wage Subsidy Available for Tourism Employers

Tourism Saskatchewan, in partnership with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Immigration and Career Training, is offering a new Tourism Wage Subsidy Employment Program. The one-time program provides a tiered wage subsidy to support tourism employers and speed recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

This program supports employers to:

  • hire new employees;
  • increase the number of hours current staff are working; or
  • re-hire employees who may have been laid off because of business challenges associated with the pandemic.

This program may be of interest to employers in the following industries:

  • accommodation (including hotels, resorts)
  • food and beverage services (including restaurants, full-service hotels, resorts)
  • recreation and entertainment (including event venues, recreation departments, event planners)
  • transportation
  • travel services
