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.

Mayor Tory announces pothole repair blitz for Toronto roads

Following the recent period of freeze/thaw weather, there has been a surge of potholes in Toronto. The City of Toronto is responding by placing road repair crews on extended hours on Thursday and Friday, and will launch a pothole repair blitz on Saturday. Mayor John Tory made this announcement at the Eastern Yard this morning.

On a typical day, 25 crews are out repairing potholes, but during the blitz, 55 crews will work on filling potholes across the city, including on the Gardiner Expressway and Don Valley Parkway. Motorists are advised to expect minor delays and to give crews space while this work is conducted.

"Potholes are a nuisance when driving and biking, and can damage tires. Winter takes a toll on our roads, especially when we experience extreme swings in temperatures like we've experienced lately," said Mayor John Tory. "Our crews will take advantage of the break from the snow to focus on filling as many potholes as they can to help keep our roads in good condition."
