Service Canada is reminding employers to apply for funding under Canada Summer Jobs 2015. The deadline to apply is Friday.
Funding is available to not-for-profit organizations, public sector employers and small businesses to hire qualified young people aged 15 to 30 who are full time students and intend to return to school in the fall. Not for profit employers could receive up to 100 percent of the provincial minimum hourly wage and mandatory employment related costs. Public sector employers and small businesses with 50 or fewer employees could receive up to 50 percent of the provincial minimum hourly wage.
Employers can apply online at www.servicecanada.gc.ca/csj or visit the Service Canada Center for information.
