Canada Summer Jobs 2017 - deadline extended to February 3

Thinking about hiring a student this summer? Canada Summer Jobs can help! Canada Summer Jobs 2017 is a wage subsidy program to help employers create summer jobs for students between 15 and 30 years of age who will return to school on a full-time basis in the fall.

This year, Canada Summer Jobs will focus on applications that complement five national priorities, including:

  • employers involved in the welcome and settlement of immigrants (including Syrian refugees) in Canada;
  • employers that hire Indigenous people;
  • employers providing opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and Information and Communications Technology (ICT);
  • employers involved in activities celebrating Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation; and
  • small businesses, in recognition of their contribution to the creation of new jobs.

If your business has 50 or fewer full-time employees, you are eligible. Your job opportunity must:

  • Support local priorities (e.g. special events, rural or remote locations, areas of high unemployment, or sectors such as tourism and agriculture)
  • Provide the student with career-related experience
  • Include employer supervision and mentoring 

Applications will be accepted up until February 3, 2017. To learn more and access the application guide and form, visit Canada Summer Jobs 2017.
