Here's a way your small business can cut the costs of hiring new employees and give young people some work experience - Canada Summer Jobs "provides funding for not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses with 50 or fewer employees to create summer job opportunities for students between the ages of 15 and 30."
- The application deadline is January 31st. Note that this date has changed from previous years. The new earlier date will give employers earlier notice about the outcome of their applications and more time to recruit employees.
- The program focuses on jobs that support local priorities; you can see the list of local priorities on the Service Canada website.
- These are intended to be summer jobs; the earliest project start date is April 21, 2014 and the latest start date is July 20, 2014.
