We received the following email from the Government and wanted to pass the message along to our businesses:
I am emailing to inform you and encourage you to apply for the current intake of Canada Summer Jobs 2017. Canada Summer Jobs is a Government of Canada initiative that provides funding for not-for-profit organizations, public sector employers and small businesses with 50 or fewer full-time employees to create summer jobs for students between the ages of 15 and 30. By hiring youth over the summer months, employers are providing students with the resources and opportunity to gain valuable employability skills and experience, making them more ready to excel in the work force after graduation.
Additional information on the program and application process can be found below:
