Employer Eligibility

The Nursing Graduate Guarantee (NGG) is open to health care employers in all sectors, including acute care, long-term care, home care, mental health, public health and primary care.

To be eligible to participate in the NGG, an employer must:

  • Be a health care organization that employs nurses and is funded by the government of Ontario for the provision of nursing services;
  • Have the infrastructure to support successful implementation of the NGG (e.g., physical infrastructure, nursing education, or professional development and management supports); and
  • Commit to transitioning new nurses into permanent, full-time employment in the organization within one year of the new nurses’ start dates.

Please refer to the Resources page for program guidelines, frequently asked questions, and other resources.
