New date to file

MP Alex Atamanenko alerts people to revisions in Canada Summer Jobs application process.

The deadline for Canada Summer Jobs 2014 (CSJ) has changed, says the MP for BC Southern Interior.

Alex Atamanenko employers wishing to apply for funding for Canada Summer Jobs positions for 2014 should be aware that the deadline is earlier than in previous years.

Service Canada has revised their timelines so that successful employers will be notified sooner and will have more time to recruit students.

Beginning Dec. 2, Canada Summer Jobs applications will be available at Service Canada Centres and online at servicecanada.gc.ca/csj.

Applications must be submitted no later than Jan. 10.

The CSJ initiative helps to create job opportunities for students aged 15 to 30 years in their communities.

Funding is provided to not-for-profit organizations, public sector employers and small businesses to assist with hiring students who will be returning to full-time studies in the next school year.

Assessment of the BC Southern Interior applications are guided by local priorities, employment factors within the constituency, on the job mentoring and career related experience provided, provision of sufficient salary and other criteria.

For eligibility criteria and guidelines for completing the application please contact a Service Canada Centre or refer to the website servicecanada.gc.ca/csj.
