Canada Summer Jobs provides funding to help employers 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. Not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses with 50 or fewer employees are eligible to apply for funding.
The Program, funded by the Government of Canada through the Canada-British Columbia Job Fund, offers employers a $2,800 wage subsidy to hire and train eligible youth 15 to 29 years of age. The funding helps BC Youth improve existing skills and gain new ones through practical experience and on-the-job-training. Employers conduct their own recruiting and at any time during the recruiting process they may apply for the funding. If the employer and proposed new hire meet the program criteria, they are eligible for the funding.
