Federal grants for summer jobs once again available for students next year
Jamie Schmale, Member of Parliament for Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock is reminding employers in the area to apply for summer help through the Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) program.
“This is an opportunity to enhance the local economy across all sectors, while simultaneously empowering our young people through experience in the labour market, which is more important now than ever” said Schmale. “Last year, $1,992,985 in funding was directed to employers within Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock, which created 606 jobs in our Riding”.
The program assists both small businesses and non-profit organizations through funding for employment opportunities for young people aged 15-30, during the summer of 2023.
The deadline to apply is Jan 12, 2023 and interested parties can find more information and apply online at https://www.canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/services/funding/canada-summer-jobs.html
