Pembroke, Ontario – Cheryl Gallant, M.P. for Renfrew—Nipissing—Pembroke, was pleased to announce that the Government of will start accepting applications for the Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) Program as of December 2nd, 2013.

“For many years, Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) has been assisting employers create much-needed summer job opportunities for students, while strengthening local economies and communities across Canada,” said MP Gallant. “That is why the Government of Canada has increased the budget for the Canada Summer Jobs program by $10 Million this year, which will help more employers create jobs, and students gain experience this summer.”

The application period begins on December 2nd, 2013 and will remain open until January 10th, 2014. These new timelines mean that successful employers will be notified sooner and have more time to recruit students.

Funding opportunities are available to not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses with 50 or fewer employees under the CSJ program. Applicants must create summer job opportunities for young people aged 15 to 30 years, who are full-time students intending to return to their studies in the next school year.

“If you have hired a student in the past, you know how productive it can be for your organization to have summer help. If you have not hired a student before, I encourage you to consider applying for CSJ funding to hire a student for next summer,” concluded MP Gallant.
