The Government of Canada is now accepting applications from employers. From December 7, 2016 to January 20, 2017. Employers across the country can apply for federal government funding to hire young Canadians for next summer, with students starting their jobs as early as April 2017.
Public-sector employers and small businesses, with 50 or fewer employees, can receive up to 50 percent of the minimum hourly wage. Not-for-profit employers can receive up to 100 percent, as well as employment-related costs.
As an employer in the CSJ program, you will be boosting your local economy by adding jobs, and providing these young people with the tangible experience they need to start their careers.
Applying is easy. Employers can submit their application online at Canada.ca/Canada-summer-jobs

Summer 2017 is your chance to help your small business, public sector or not-for-profit organization thrive by employing energetic and enthusiastic young Canadians, while giving them a chance to get work experience that helps them prepare for their own career.
