Get Ready to Apply for Funding!
Canada Summer Jobs provides government funding for businesses with less than 50 employees, as well as not-for-profit and public sector organizations to hire new employees. For businesses, the subsidy is 50% of the adult minimum wage per student hired. For organizations, funding is up to 100% of the adult minimum wage per student hired. The length of employment must be for 30 to 40 hours/week for six to sixteen weeks. Businesses can receive incentives for more than one employee so long as they do not exceed the maximum funding amount of $300,000. Eligible summer workers are Canadian citizens or protected refugees (as defined under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act), between the ages of 15 and 30, and are currently full time-students planning to return to their studies the next academic year. Government funding preference will be for jobs that:
- Support local priorities and community services
- Provide meaningful work experience and financial contribution
- Employ a visible minority, Indigenous person, new immigrant/refugee or a person with a disability
- Offer sound supervision and mentoring
- Offer services/support for the LGBTQ2 community
- Are directed toward members of, and support the vitality of, an official-language minority community
Supported work terms may begin April 23, 2018 and must end no later than September 1, 2018. Additionally, $3000 in government funding for businesses looking to offset “accommodation” costs of hiring a student with a disability may be available. All work placements are to be in Canada. Deadline to apply is 11:59 PST February 2, 2018.
