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
“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
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
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
“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
or print an application from the website.
