"We are excited about the launch of this program," says Dr. Mohamed Abousalem, Chief Executive Officer of TECTERRA. "One of TECTERRA's primary objectives as an organization is to increase geomatics employment opportunities for HQPs in Alberta and to generate economic value for geomatics companies. GEO-Placement will help companies employ highly qualified personnel who will serve long-term business needs."
Under the GEO-Placement Funding Program, successful applicants will be awarded a non-repayable grant of 50% of the position salary, up to $50,000, for a period of one year.
