Great news for full-time students for this summer! The Government of Canada has just opened the application period for its Canada Summer Jobs initiative which will provide funding for employers who create summer job opportunities for students. The application period will be open from the 1st to the 28th of February, and will allow not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers, and small businesses with 50 or fewer employees to present their proposals.
The funding initiative will benefit students in more ways than one. Several of the application assessment criteria are focused on helping students with jobs that can provide them with career-related experience, early work experience, and supervision and mentoring in addition to much-needed income. Jobs may also provide students with the rewarding experience of serving the local community.
Under the program, employers will be able to create jobs for full-time students who intend to continue their studies during the following school year. An age limit of 15 to 30 years has also been established. Projects designed to hire priority students (students with disabilities, Aboriginal students and students who are members of visible minority groups) may be rated higher.
Employers who are interested in presenting an application may do so online or by filling out a paper application form. However, before completing an application, they are required to consult the Canada Summer Jobs Applicant Guide as well as review the local priorities for their constituencies. Both are available online or at any Service Canada Centre, or can be requested by calling 1-800-935-555.
Complete information and all the necessary links can be found on the Service Canada website.
