Employers, the annual call for applications for the Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) program is open until January 29, 2021.
To support employers through a period of economic recovery, up to 120,000 Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) for youth will be funded by the government – an increase of 40,000 jobs compared to last year.
Temporary flexibilities will aid the needs of employers and youth. Employers are encouraged to offer quality jobs on a full-time basis (35 hours per week), however, part-time jobs (minimum of 12 hours per week) will also be eligible for funding to enable hiring of youth outside of the summer period.
Employer applicants can apply for funding to hire youth anytime between April 26, 2021 and February 26, 2022.
Approved employers from the not-for profit sector are eligible for a wage subsidy reimbursement of up to 100% of the provincial or territorial minimum hourly wage.
Approved public and private sector employers will be eligible to receive a wage subsidy reimbursement of up to 75% of the provincial or territorial minimum hourly wage.
If you are an employer who is interested in creating quality work experiences that offer youth opportunities to develop and improve their skills, apply for the Canada Summer Job funding. It is easier than ever.
