Investing in young people is 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.

To get more youth working, small businesses with up to 50 employees, not-for-profit organizations and public-sector employers in Brampton West can now apply for funding for Canada Summer Jobs 2020. Applications can be submitted until February 24, 2020.

“I encourage Brampton West 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 Kamal Khera, Member of Parliament – Brampton West.

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.

“Programs like Canada Summer Jobs give youth across Canada a chance to develop their skills and gain valuable work experience through quality job opportunities. This benefits youth, employers and communities everywhere in the country. I look forward to another successful season as we help equip our young leaders to participate in our thriving economy, both today and tomorrow,” said Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Disability Inclusion.

Providing high-quality jobs helps small businesses and not-for-profit organizations hire youth in quality jobs while also supporting our local communities.

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

  • • Organizations that provide services to or intend to hire youth who self-identify as being part of underrepresented groups or as having additional barriers to entering or staying in the labour market, as outlined below:  new immigrant / refugee youth (new is defined as having arrived in Canada in the past five years);  Indigenous youth; youth who have not completed high school;  visible minorities / racialized youth;  LGBTQ2 youth; women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM); and, youth who have not previously been employed and for whom this would be their first job experience.
    •  
    • • Opportunities offered by organizations that provide services to persons with disabilities or intend to hire youth with disabilities.
    • • Opportunities for youth in rural areas, remote communities, or official language minority communities.
    • • Opportunities offered by organizations that focus on protecting and conserving the environment.
    • • Opportunities for youth to work in small businesses, in recognition of their contribution to the creation of jobs.
