261 JOBS OFFERED IN 90 ORGANIZATIONS IN CHÂTEAUGUAY-LACOLLE
As summer is fast approaching and many young Canadians are turning their minds to summer jobs, I am delighted to announce that 261 positions are offered in 90 organizations throughout the constituency. The hiring season is open now until July 12th.
The Canada Summer Jobs program allows all youth aged 15-30 to gain valuable work experiences in businesses, community organizations and public sector organizations.
Young job seekers can view all the postings and apply online through the Job Bank website at www.jobbank.gc.ca/youth or the Job Bank mobile app of the Government of Canada. The complete list of beneficiary organizations can also be found at https://bit.ly/2vPoqFB.
This year, the constituency of Châteauguay-Lacolle benefits from additional funding to better meet the needs of small municipalities and of the many community organizations.The budget available for employers is $769,000, compared to $626,00 in 2018, resulting in more subsidized work hours.
For many youth, a Canada Summer Job is their first experience in the workforce and a great opportunity to begin building a resume and saving money. Over the summer, my staff and will tour the new beneficiary organizations to meet the young workers and their supervisors.
Canada Summer Jobs is an important program for our community because it allows young people to develop their skills to start their careers and employers to get a helping hand.
Since 2016, the Government of Canada has doubled the funding for the program to create more than 70,000 summer jobs annually from coast to coast. Non-profit organizations are eligible for a subsidy representing 100% of the minimum hourly wage, while private and public sectors organizations receive 50%.
“Our Government is focused on ensuring that more young Canadians get the work experience they need to succeed in our changing economy. Providing youth with opportunities for paid work helps to ensure they have a fair chance at success.”, adds the Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour, Patty Hajdu.
