Canada Summer Jobs 2013 for students drives economic growth
Minister of State Ted Menzies delivering remarks.
Government funding is in place for 36,000 new summer jobs for students in 2013.
Minister of State (Finance) and Member of Parliament for Macleod Ted Menzies announced on behalf of Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development the creation of thousands of students jobs this summer.
“Our Government’s top priorities are job creation, economic growth and long-term prosperity,” says Menzies. “Our continued investment in Canada Summer Jobs will create thousands of jobs for students this summer, strengthening the local economies of communities right across Canada.”
Canada Summer Jobs benefits employers and students alike, with students gaining tangible work experience and earn money for the upcoming school year.
Funding will be available for not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses to create high-quality summer job opportunities for young people from 15 to 30 years of age who are full-time students intending to return to their studies in the next school year.
“Today’s students are tomorrow’s workforce, so by investing in them we are helping contribute to Canada’s long-term growth, competitiveness and overall prosperity,” adds Menzies.
Beginning Feb. 1, Canada Summer Jobs applications will be available for interested employers online at servicecanada.gc.ca/csj2013 and at Service Canada Centres.
Employers will be able to complete and submit their applications online, by mail or in person.
Applications must be submitted between Feb. 1 and 28.
