Canada Summer Jobs Program Application Deadline Extended

 

Chatham, ON – The Canada Summer Jobs Program 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.

“Over the years, many businesses and not-for-profit agencies have benefited from having a summer student” said Van Kesteren. “Whether it is helping organize local events or keeping parks and downtowns clean and beautiful, this is a great and important opportunity for the youth of Chatham-Kent and Leamington.”

For further information and to apply, please visit www.servicecanada.gc.ca/csj or visit a Service Canada Centre.

  • Not-for-profit employers can receive up to 100 percent of the provincial/territorial minimum hourly wage and mandatory employment-related costs.
