It’s time to spread the word about the employer application period for Canada Summer Jobs 2015. This year, applications will be accepted until January 30, 2015. Funding is available to not-for-profit organizations, small businesses and public-sector employers and applies to secondary and post-secondary students.
The Canada Summer Jobs program is part of a larger federal government strategy called YES (Youth Employment Strategy). Our government invests approximately $330 million every year in YES in order to do exactly what the Canada Summer Jobs program has mandated: to help our younger people develop employable skills and gain necessary work experience.
Since the Canada Summer Jobs program began in 2006-2007, it has helped over 304,000 students. Last year, church camps, museums, small businesses and local charitable organizations were among those that benefitted within the federal constituency of Yorkton-Melville. In 2015, the program is expected to create approximately 35,000 jobs.
