STETSKI: CANADA SUMMER JOBS PROGRAM WILL HELP BOLSTER LOCAL ECONOMY
CRANBROOK – Kootenay–Columbia MP Wayne Stetski is reminding eligible
area employers and organizations that the deadline for submitting applications
to Canada Summer Jobs 2016 (CSJ) is February 26, 2016.
"This is a great opportunity for students to gain experience in the
workforce. Programs like Canada Summer Jobs help bolster the local
economy," said Stetski. "I encourage eligible employers to
apply for this funding and hire a student for the summer."
The CSJ initiative helps to create job opportunities for students aged 15-30
in their communities. Funding is provided to not-for-profit
organizations, public sector employers, and small businesses to assist with
hiring students who will be returning to full-time studies in the next school
“One of my jobs as the Member of Parliament is to ensure
Kootenay-Columbia is not left in the dark about various federal funding or
assistance that is available for the riding,” added Stetski. “I will continue
to work hard to bring your voice to Ottawa and bring Ottawa back to the riding.”
Assessment of the Kootenay-Columbia applications are guided by
local priorities, employment factors within the constituency, on-the-job
mentoring and career related experience, provision of sufficient salary and
other criteria. This year, Canada Summer Jobs applications are available online
and must be completed by
February 26, 2016.
For eligibility criteria and guidelines for completing the application,
please contact a Service Canada Centre or refer to the website at www.servicecanada.gc.ca/csj.
