Canada Summer Jobs 2016 now accepting applications

By Robert Pearsall, PA to MP Mark Strahl


ot-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses with 50 or fewer employees looking to hire full-time workers for summer 2016 can now apply for funding under the Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) program, announced Chilliwack-Hope MP Mark Strahl.


“I encourage small businesses, not-for-profit organizations and public sector works to apply for funding. This program can benefit both employers and those students looking to gain real world experience while earning money for school,” said Strahl.


CSJ creates summer job opportunities and valuable work experience specifically for youth aged 15 to 30 intending to return to their studies in the next school year. The program’s aim is also to help employers create summer job opportunities that focus on priorities important to their local communities, which could include special events such as sporting or cultural occasions.


The application period runs from January 4, 2016, to February 26, 2016. Applicants approved for funding will be able to hire students as early as May 2016.
