MP Sorenson Invites Local Employers to Apply for Canada Summer Jobs 2017 “Creating jobs for students strengthens our communities,” Sorenson says.
Ottawa – The Hon. Kevin Sorenson, Member of Parliament for Battle River-Crowfoot, is inviting local employers to apply for funding through the Canada Summer Jobs program 2017 to help create jobs for students next summer.
“Every year, we try to focus on local priorities, while achieving tangible results for both students and their communities through this federal initiative,” says Sorenson. “It works in local economies throughout our large riding.”
The Canada Summer Jobs initiative provides funding to not-for-profit, public-sector and small private-sector employers with 50 or fewer employees. It creates summer job opportunities for young people 15 to 30 years of age who are full-time students intending to return to their studies in the next school year.
Employers can apply online at www.servicecanada.gc.ca/csj or print an application from the website. Applications are available at any Service Canada Centre. The application period for Canada Summer Jobs 2017 will be from December 5, 2016 to January 20, 2017, so that students may be hired beginning in April 2017.
“These full-time students who intend to return to their studies in the next school year can return home for the summer months – and have a summer job. This is important to families in our riding. Through Canada Summer Jobs, we are helping young Canadians get the skills and experience they need to get jobs now and in the future,” Sorenson concludes.
