North Bay Nugget - - NEWS -

Not-for-profit or­ga­ni­za­tions, pub­lic-sec­tor em­ploy­ers and small busi­nesses with up to 50 em­ploy­ees can now ap­ply for fed­eral sum­mer job fund­ing.

The Canada Sum­mer Jobs (CSJ) pro­gram pro­vides fund­ing for sum­mer jobs for youth aged 15 to 30 and also helps em­ploy­ers fill labour gaps dur­ing the sum­mer months.

Nipiss­ing-timiskam­ing MP An­thony Rota will host an in­for­ma­tion ses­sion for po­ten­tial ap­pli­cants who would like to learn more about the pro­gram Mon­day from 10 a.m.-noon at North Bay Mu­seum (up­stairs meet­ing room), 100 Fer­gu­son St. RSVP: 705-474-3700 This year, el­i­gi­bil­ity has been ex­panded to all youth aged15-30 who are legally en­ti­tled to work in Canada – not just stu­dents.

All po­si­tions will be posted on job­bank.gc.ca to get the word out and help match young peo­ple with em­ploy­ers.

Not-for-profit em­ploy­ers can re­ceive 100 per cent of the provin­cial min­i­mum wage. Public­sec­tor em­ploy­ers and pri­vate sec­tor em­ploy­ers with 50 or fewer full-time em­ploy­ees can re­ceive 50 per cent.
