Local MP Jamie Schmale today announced $949,494 in funding to 115 different employers across the riding to create 289 summer jobs for young workers this summer.
Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) helps youth aged 15-30 gain the skills and experience they will need to be successful now and in the future. CSJ provides funding to not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses with 50 or fewer employees.
“Canada Summer Jobs program will allow us to help young Canadians with the skills and experience they need to get jobs,” stated Schmale. “These summer jobs in Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock will help young people, employers and our local economy.”
“I would like to congratulate all of the local employers who successfully received funding on their applications through the Canada Summer Jobs program,” added Schmale. “This program is an asset not only to our riding and youth, but right across our country as well”
