To facilitate the opportunity for youth employment, small businesses with up to 50 employees, not-for-profit organizations and public sector employers throughout Foothills can now apply for funding for Canada Summer Jobs 2020. Applications can be submitted until February 24, 2020.
The Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) program creates summer job opportunities to provide valuable work experience for youth aged 15 to 30. These jobs help students gain the skills and experience they need to successfully join the workforce.
Providing high-quality jobs helps small businesses and not-for-profit organizations hire youth in quality jobs while also supporting our local communities.
I encourage Foothills not-for-profit organizations, public sector employers and small businesses to apply for funding through the Canada Summer Jobs program so our students have more opportunities to gain the skills and experience they need to be successful, while earning money for the upcoming school year.
For more information and to apply, please visit Canada.ca/Canada-summer-jobs
