2018 Canada Summer Jobs Program

Canada Summer Jobs

Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) is an initiative of the Summer Work Experience program. It provides wage subsidies to employers to create employment for secondary and post-secondary students. Once again, CSJ welcomes applications from small businesses, not-for-profit employers, public sector and faith-based organizations that provide quality summer jobs for students.

CSJ provides funding to not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses with 50 or fewer full-time employees to create summer job opportunities for young people aged 15 to 30 years who are full time students intending to return to their studies in the next school year.

CSJ applications are now available at Service Canada Centres, and online at canada.ca/Canada-summer-jobs. To find out more information on how to complete an application that meets the program's goals and priorities click here https://www.canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/services/funding/canada-summer-jobs.html .

Applications from employers must be submitted by February 2, 2018.
