Canada Summer Jobs for students

Government of Canada supports jobs for students in Kootenay Columbia

For many employers, it’s already time to start thinking about recruiting students this summer.

Through the Government’s Canada Summer Jobs program, small businesses, public-sector and not-for-profit organizations have our support in creating jobs for secondary and post-secondary students.

By hiring students, employers benefit from the fresh perspective and new ideas they bring to the workplace. Young Canadians will gain valuable, on-the-job experience. Investing in students benefits our community, economy and society as a whole. It’s a win-win for both students and employers.

The employer application period for Canada Summer Jobs 2015 is now open. Applications are available at servicecanada.gc.ca/csj and must be submitted by January 30.

Since 2006, the Government of Canada has helped over six million young Canadians receive experience, training, and skills needed for better jobs.

 

I strongly encourage employers to apply for funding and give students the opportunity to develop the skills and gain the work experience they need to be successful, now and in the future.
