Connecting Youth and Employers to Grow our Economy

Investing $1.5 million over two years to expand the EDGE Pilot Program across the province to provide youth aged 18-26 who receive income support with mentorship and youth-focused support that will help them find their way into the workforce.

All young Nova Scotians should have the opportunity to develop life and leadership skills while gaining practical work experience. This is crucial to position our young Nova Scotians for career success and independence.

The Liberal government established the EDGE Pilot Program in 2018 to provide clients aged 18-26 who receive income support and assistance with mentorship and youth focused supports, in order to provide a path into the workforce so they can succeed in this province. The Liberal government further expanded this pilot program in 2021 to ensure that up to 200 youth in Bridgewater, New Glasgow, Sydney and North End Halifax can participate in this program and have a path to meaningful employment. 

A re-elected Liberal government will commit an additional $1.5 million over the next two years to further expand the EDGE Pilot Program to even more areas of the province.  By ensuring that all of our youth have the confidence and support they need to enter our workforce into meaningful and well paying jobs, we will help businesses fill their labour gaps and ensure more young Nova Scotians can benefit from our re-energized economy.
