The program provides funding to not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employees and small businesses with 50 or fewer employees to create summer job opportunities for young people between the ages of 15-30.

“The Canada Summer Jobs Program has been very effective in allowing young people in Bruce and Grey counties to gain valuable experience in the local workforce,” said Larry Miller, MP for Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound. “This earlier deadline for applications will ensure that employers who are accepted for the program have sufficient time to recruit students.”
