Canada Summer Jobs funding applications are now open!
Through the Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) program, employers can receive funding to hire a young Canadian between the ages of 15 and 30.
This program has been a huge success in Dartmouth-Cole Harbour, providing numerous jobs for young people here in our community.
NEW: This year we’ve expanded the eligibility to include ALL youth between the ages of 15-30 who are legally entitled to work in Canada – not just students.
Not-for-profit employers are eligible to receive funding for up to 100% of the provincial or territorial adult minimum hourly wage.
Public and private sector employers are eligible to receive funding for up to 50% of the provincial or territorial adult minimum hourly wage.
Hiring a youth brings new energy and ideas into the workplace. As an employer in the CSJ program, you will be boosting your local economy by creating good quality jobs and helping young people acquire the skills that will help them succeed.
The deadline is January 25th, 2019.
