Jobs application deadline moved forward

The application deadline for grants under the Canada Summer Jobs has been moved forward to January 10th.

  • Nov. 21, 2013 11:00 a.m.

It is important that local businesses and organizations that make use of the Canada Summer Jobs program are aware of a change to the deadline for applications.

Alex Atamanenko, MP for BC Southern Interior, issued a press release last week alerting eligible employers and organizations of the change.

“It is earlier than in previous years and I don’t want anyone to miss the opportunity to apply”, said Atamanenko.

Service Canada has revised their timelines so that successful employers will be notified sooner and will have more time to recruit students. Beginning Dec. 2, 2013, Canada Summer Jobs applications will be available at Service Canada Centres and online at servicecanada.gc.ca/csj. Applications must be submitted no later than Jan. 10, 2014.

The CSJ initiative helps to create job opportunities for students aged 15 to 30 years 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 year. Assessment of the BC Southern Interior applications are guided by local priorities, employment factors within the constituency, on the job mentoring and career related experience provided, provision of sufficient salary and other criteria.

For eligibility criteria and guidelines for completing the application please contact a Service Canada Centre or refer to the website servicecanada.gc.ca/csj
