Canada Summer Job program is accepting applications; the applications can be submitted until February 24, 2020. To get more youth working, small businesses with up to 50 employees, not-for-profit organizations and public-sector employers in Brampton South can now apply for funding for Canada Summer Jobs 2020.

Investing in young people is a key to ensuring Canada’s prosperity. Getting a good-quality summer job is a great way to help young Canadians gain valuable skills and workplace experience toward starting a meaningful career—all while helping build our workforce.

The Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) program creates summer job opportunities that provide valuable work experience for youth aged 15 to 30. These jobs help them gain the skills and experience they need to successfully join the workforce.

Providing high-quality jobs helps small businesses and not-for-profit organizations hire youth in quality jobs while also supporting our local communities. In Brampton South, the priorities focus on location and/or sector, but all eligible applicants are encouraged to apply.
“I encourage Brampton area not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses to apply for funding through the Canada Summer Jobs program. Helping young Canadians develop their skills and gain valuable workplace experience will ensure a strong economy and a healthy middle class.” said Sonia Sidhu, MP Brampton South
