Employers have a month to apply for funding through the Canada Summer Jobs program.
Randy Kamp, member of Parliament for Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge-Mission, today encouraged employers to apply for funding through the Canada Summer Jobs program to help create student jobs.
“Our government’s top priorities are job creation, economic growth and long-term prosperity,” said Kamp. “Through Canada Summer Jobs, we are helping Pitt Meadows Maple Ridge and Mission employers create meaningful summer job opportunities for students, while strengthening our community’s economy.”
Funding will be available to not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses. Young people aged 15 to 30 years who are full-time students and intend to return to school in the following school year can qualify for these job opportunities.
Employers can apply online at servicecanada.gc.ca/csj2013 or print an application from the website. They can also get an application by visiting any Service Canada Centre. Applications must be submitted between Feb. 1 and Feb. 28.
To help employers complete their application, the Canada Summer Jobs Applicant Guide is available online, by calling 1-800-935-5555, or by visiting any Service Canada Centre.
