130 Students in Cloverdale-Langley City set to benefit this summer from Federal Funding to the Canada Summer Jobs Program
June 27, 2017 – Ottawa, Ontario
The Government of Canada continues to help young Canadians get the experience and develop the skills they need to get a strong start in their careers. The Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ)
program provides funding to help employers create summer job opportunities for students in their communities.
A summer job is an important way for young people to learn new skills and get valuable work experience for their résumés. Thanks to CSJ, young Canadians from across the country will be able to access thousands of summer jobs opportunities with small businesses, not-for-profit organizations and the public sector.
Last year, the Government of Canada nearly doubled the number of jobs available through the CSJ program, from 34,000 jobs to roughly 65,800. Since its inception in 2007, CSJ has helped approximately 330,000 students.
“Our government is committed to our plan to give Canadian youth the tools and supports they need to succeed, and Canada Summer Jobs is a big part of that plan. I invite all students who are looking for a summer job to take advantage of this opportunity to develop their skills, gain valuable work experience and earn money.”
- The Honourable Patty Hajdu, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour
"By investing in young students in Cloverdale-Langley City, we help them build a better future by providing them with opportunities to gain valuable skills and experience while earning money for the upcoming school year.”
