Canada Summer Jobs 2018: Applications Now Open

The Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) program creates summer job opportunities which provide valuable work experience for full-time students aged 15 to 30 who intend to return to their studies in the next school year.

Employers are invited to submit applications that complement this year’s national priorities:

  • Employers who intend to hire youth who are in underrepresented groups, including new immigrant youth/refugees, Indigenous youth, youth with disabilities and visible minorities;
  • Small businesses, in recognition of their contribution to the creation of jobs;
  • Organizations that support opportunities for official language minority communities ;
  • Organizations that provide services and/or support the LGBTQ2 community; and
  • Organizations that provide opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and Information and Communications Technology (ICT), particularly for women.

The local priorities for Markham-Stouffville can be found here.

The application period runs from December 19, 2017, to February 2, 2018.

Not-for-profit employers can receive 100 percent of the provincial or territorial minimum hourly wage. Public-sector employers and small businesses with 50 or fewer full-time employees across Canada can receive 50 percent of the provincial or territorial minimum hourly wage. All employers may be eligible for additional funding of up to $3,000 per student with disabilities to accommodate the student within the workplace with personal tools and adaptations that the student requires to accomplish tasks.

For more information and to apply, please visit Canada.ca/Canada-summer-jobs, a Service Canada Office or call 1-800-935-5555.
