Employers can now apply for funding under Canada Summer Jobs 2015.

Funding will be available to not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses to hire qualified young people aged 15 to 30, who are full-time students and intend to return to school in the fall. It is estimated that up to 35,000 young Canadians will benefit from summer employment while helping employers address skills shortages.

Part of the Government of Canada’s Youth Employment Strategy, Canada Summer Jobs helps students gain the skills and experience they need to be successful, now and in the future, while earning money for the upcoming school year.

Employers may submit applications at www.servicecanada.gc.ca/csj by Jan. 30, 2015.

“Our government’s priorities are creating jobs, economic growth and long-term prosperity,” said Vancouver Island North MP John Duncan. “Through Canada Summer Jobs, we are helping young Canadians get the skills and experience they need to get jobs now and in the future. I encourage employers to apply for funding to create jobs that will help students, employers and their local economies.”
