Algoma-Manitoulin-Kapuskasing, MP Carol Hughes says it’s time for employers who want to participate in the Canada Summers Job program to submit their applications. 

Media release: The program helps bring together young people looking for valuable workforce experience and employers who will receive assistance from the government to accommodate these workers.

“Investing in young people is key to our future prosperity and their development as well,” said Hughes.  “Summer jobs are a big part of that which is why this program is so popular.”

The program helps place young workers in small businesses with up to 50 employees, not-for-profit organizations, and the public-sector.  Employers in Algoma-Manitoulin-Kapuskasing have until February 24, to apply for funding through Canada Summer Jobs 2020

“Canada Summer Jobs helps employers provide high-quality jobs while developing young people’s skills and experience,” said Hughes. “That’s why I encourage every eligible employer to consider applying.”
