Canada Summer Jobs provides funding to help companies and organizations create 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. The objective is to provide work experiences for students, and support organizations, including those that provide important community services.
Since 2007, the program has helped over 260,000 students. Canada Summer Jobs 2014 is expected to create approximately 35,000 jobs. This will help employers address skills shortages, and allow students to gain the skills and experience they need to be successful now and in the future. Additionally, students can earn money for the upcoming school year.
