MP announces summer jobs funding for young workers
Rob Morrison, Member of Parliament for Kootenay-Columbia, is pleased to announce that the Canada Summer Jobs program is now open for applications.
Effective January 31, employers can now apply to receive funding to hire young Canadians over the summer.
“I encourage not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses in Kootenay-Columbia to apply for funding through the Canada Summer Jobs program,” said Morrison. “Helping young Canadians develop their skills and gain valuable workplace experience will ensure a strong economy and a healthy middle class.”
Small businesses with up to 50 employees, not-for-profit organizations and public-sector employers in Kootenay-Columbia can now apply for funding. Applications can be submitted until February 24. The Canada Summer Jobs program creates summer job opportunities that provide valuable work experience for youth aged 15 to 30. These jobs help them gain the skills and experience they need to successfully join the workforce.
Providing high-quality jobs helps small businesses and not-for-profit organizations hire youth in quality jobs while also supporting our local communities. All eligible applicants are encouraged to apply. Employers are invited to submit applications that complement this year’s national priorities.
