The federal government has a program that funds jobs for students during the summer. Employers apply for a portion of money they pay students they hire for the summer months.

The jobs are then listed and students can look and see if there is anything they are interested in.

The program offers students meaningful summer work experiences with local businesses and organizations, and helps them to facilitate future transitions from school to career.

Since 2015, the federal government has doubled the number of jobs created through the Canada Summer Jobs program, creating paid work experience for nearly 70,000 students each year. Students who worked at  Habitat for Humanity Halton- Mississauga last summer described their experience with Canada Summer Jobs, saying:

“The Canada Summer Jobs program has been such a fulfilling and enriching experience—I am truly fortunate to have enjoyed two successful summers at Habitat for Humanity. I have gained so much valuable and tangible experience from my time here.”

Students aged 15 to 30 who are returning to full time school in the fall can apply for a valuable summer work experience through Canada Summer Jobs.

    You didn’t mention anything about the Libetals demanding that organizations who want federal money to fund student summer jobs have to pass a biased Liberal values test. Are you OK with this?
