Community Enhancement Employment Program

The Community Enhancement Employment Program (CEEP) is a provincially-funded program that provides short-term employment. Workers in rural areas are employed by local governments or community organizations for up to 400 hours to assist them with eligibility for Employment Insurance benefits.

The department provides funding towards projects that contribute to tourism development, economic development, community/municipal infrastructure, and community services. The department also encourages project sponsors to develop projects that provide skills development opportunities for workers and ongoing benefits to the region.

Project sponsors must be established not-for-profit organizations or local governments. This includes towns, regional municipalities, Inuit community governments, local service districts, community or economic development organizations, and other not-for-profit organizations.
