Employers invited to apply for summer jobs funding

Abbotsford MP Ed Fast is encouraging employers to apply for funding through the Canada Summer Jobs program.

“Through Canada Summer Jobs, we are helping employers in Abbotsford create much-needed summer job opportunities for students, while strengthening our community’s economy,” said Fast.

Funding will be available for not-for-profit organizations and public-sector employers to create high-quality 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.

In 2011, the federal government permanently increased the annual budget for Canada Summer Jobs by $10 million. The increased funding is helping more students gain the skills and experience they need to be successful, both now and in the future.

To help employers complete their application, the Canada Summer Jobs Applicant Guide is available online, by calling 1-800-935-5555, or by visiting any Service Canada Centre.

Employers can visit http://tinyurl.com/89gxpzx, to get an application from the website. They can also get an application by visiting any Service Canada Centre. Applications must be submitted between now and Feb. 29.
