36,000 jobs for students up for grabs this summer
By Nouman Khalil | Tuesday February 7 2012

Calling it a ‘golden opportunity’ for both students and employers, the federal government launched a program designed to create jobs for inexperienced school-goers.

Service Canada last week officially launched Canada Summer Jobs 2012 program that will help create more than 36,000 job opportunities for students across Canada. Through the Canada Summer Jobs 2012 program, those eligible will get funding for hiring and training inexperienced students.

“We are trying to remove the ‘experience’ barrier for those students who are without experience,” said Pierre Poilievre, parliamentary secretary to the minister of transport, infrastructure and communities and for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario, speaking to Focus from Ottawa.

“When someone hires a brand new employee, obviously a cost is associated to it... there is a learning and training process, and our government is helping them (employers) with that cost through this program,” said Poilievre.

On behalf of Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development Diane Finley, Poilievre invited employers from across the country to get benefit of this golden opportunity and apply for funding at Service Canada website by Feb 29.

After an application is received, indicating where and how many students the employer will hire during summer, officials will review the application. If they meet the criteria, the government will help them cover those wages.

Funding will be available for not-for-profit organizations, public sector employers and small businesses to create high-quality summer job opportunities for young people aged 15 to 30 years who are full-time students intending to return to their studies in the next school year.

In 2011, the government of Canada permanently increased the annual budget for Canada Summer Jobs by $10 million.

“Our government’s top priority is job creation and economic growth, and Canada Summer Jobs 2012 will provide up to 36,000 important job opportunities and experiences for students across the country,” said Poilievre.

“Today’s students are tomorrow’s workforce, so by investing in them we are helping contribute to Canada’s long-term growth, competitiveness and overall prosperity,” added Poilievre.

Employers can apply online at www.servicecanada.gc.ca/eng/epb/yi/yep/programs/scpp.shtml, or print an application from the website.
