Government of Canada: Seeking Applications for Canada Summer Jobs Initiative

Deadline: 2 February 2018

Government of Canada is seeking applications for its initiative entitled “Canada Summer Jobs” to provide wage subsidies to employers to create employment for secondary and post-secondary students.

CSJ provides funding to not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses with 50 or fewer full-time employees to create summer job opportunities for young people aged 15 to 30 years who are full-time students intending to return to their studies in the next school year.

Again this year, Canada Summer Jobs welcomes applications from small businesses, not-for-profit employers, public sector and faith-based organizations that provide quality summer jobs for students.

Objectives

CSJ has three objectives:

  • providing work experiences for students
  • supporting organizations, including those that provide important community services
  • recognizing that local circumstances, community needs and priorities vary widely

Program Priorities

  • Employers who intend to hire youth who are in underrepresented groups, including new immigrant youth/refugees, Indigenous youth, youth with disabilities and visible minorities.
  • Small businesses, in recognition of their contribution to the creation of jobs
  • Organizations that support opportunities for official language minority communities
  • Organizations that provide services and/or supports for the LGBTQ2 community

    • have a valid Social Insurance Number at the start of employment and be legally entitled to work in Canada in accordance with relevant provincial or territorial legislation and regulations
  • Employers from the not-for-profit, public and private sector may apply for wage contributions under the Canada Summer Jobs initiative.
  • Private sector employers must have 50 or fewer full-time employees across Canada to be eligible. Full-time employees are those working 30 hours or more per week.
  • To be eligible, the core mandate of the organization must respect individual human rights in Canada, including the values underlying the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms (Charter) as well as other rights.
