For many years, Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) has been helping employers such as yourself create much-needed summer job opportunities for young Canadians, while strengthening local economies and communities across Canada.
Canada Summer Jobs helps employers create much-needed summer job opportunities for students, while strengthening local economies and communities across Canada.
To help accommodate businesses during the pandemic, the CSJ program this year will be keeping the temporary expansions which were part of the 2020 version of the program:
These expansions are:
- an increase to the wage subsidy, so that private and public sector employees can receive up to 75 per cent of the provincial minimum hourly wage for each employee;
- an extension to the end date for employment to February 26, 2022; and
- allowing employers to hire staff on a part-time basis.
Also due to the pandemic, in order to be eligible to receive funding, employers must be able to provide workers with a job placement in a safe work environment.
Funding opportunities are available to all not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers, and small businesses with 50 of fewer full-time staff. Applicants must create job opportunities for young people aged 15 to 30 years.
The application period begins on December 21st, 2020 and will remain open until January 29th, 2021.
