OTTAWA, ON– Dave MacKenzie, Member of Parliament for Oxford, is happy to announce that not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses with 50 or fewer employees will soon be able to apply for funding under the Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) program.
CSJ creates summer job opportunities and valuable work experience specifically for youth aged 15 to 30 intending to return to their studies in the next school year. The program’s aim is also to help employers create summer job opportunities that focus on priorities important to their local communities, which could include special events such as sporting or cultural occasions.
The application period runs from January 4, 2016, to February 26, 2016. Applicants approved for funding will be able to hire students as early as May 2016.
