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
  • Organization that support opportunities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and information and communications and technology (ICT), particularly for women.

    • 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. These include reproductive rights and the right to be free from discrimination on the basis of sex, religion, race, national or ethnic origin, colour, mental or physical disability, sexual orientation or gender identity or expression.
