Apply by Jan. 25 to hire through Canada Summer Jobs program

·1 min read

About 100,000 summer jobs will be supported by the 2022 Canada Summer Jobs program.

The program provides wage subsidies to employers in all sectors – not-for-profit, public, and private organizations with 50 or fewer full-time employees.

The program aims to create quality summer work experiences for young people aged 15 to 30 years that also improve access to the labour market for youth who face unique barriers.

For this program, MPs can identify local priorities for their constituency that take into account local labour market needs, including sectors experiencing labour shortages.

Applications that support local priorities will receive additional points during Service Canada’s assessment.

Priorities identified for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound on the federal website are:

-Specific economic sector: Agricultural, forestry, fishing and hunting

-Programs and/or support to specific target groups: Children and/or youth; Seniors.

-Specific type of project: Supporting small businesses; Supporting local and regional tourism development.

Service Canada expects an average funded job duration of 8 weeks and for 35 hours per week.

Decisions are made after Service Canada assesses applications, and feedback is provided by Members of Parliament who review eligible projects in each constituency.

Service Canada will let applicants know about funding decisions starting in April 2022.

Funded employers and youth participants must complete questionnaires to provide Service Canada with feedback on their CSJ experience. The mandatory employer questionnaire must be completed before submitting a payment claim. Completion of the youth questionnaire is voluntary.

These positions are advertised on the federal government’s Job Bank.
