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.
