Today, the Honourable Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Disability Inclusion, announced the launch of the employer application period for the 2020 Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) program. Starting today, not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers, and private employers with up to 50 employees can apply for funding to hire a young Canadian next summer. The application period is open until February 24, 2020. The CSJ program helps employers create quality summer job opportunities and provide valuable work experience for youth aged 15 to 30. It also helps organizations hire youth in quality jobs during the busy summer months. The CSJ 2020 call for proposals was launched on January 30, 2020, and will close on February 24, 2020.
