Summer job opportunities in Quinte
The federal government is helping youth in the Quinte region connect with summer employment opportunities.
Through the 2017 Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) program, youth in the riding can gain valuable skills and needed finances for their upcoming academic school year. A summer job is a vital way for young people to learn new skills, and practise building their résumés to reflect new work experiences.
The Government of Canada continues to help young Canadians establish themselves as they move toward their future careers. The CSJ program provides funding to help employers create summer job opportunities for students in their communities, providing the experience and essential skills they need to get ahead.
“Bay of Quinte students, if you are ready to spend the summer expanding your opportunities, gaining valuable skills and experience, while earning money for the upcoming school year, please look consider participating in the Canada Summer Jobs program,” stated MP Neil Ellis in a press release.
Thanks to CSJ, young Canadians from across the country are able to access thousands of summer job opportunities with small businesses, not-for-profit organizations and the public sector. Students can find out which Bay of Quinte employers are hiring, through the Canada Summer Jobs program, at: Canada.ca/canada-summer-jobs.
Last year, the Government of Canada nearly doubled the amount of jobs available through the CSJ program, from 34,000 jobs to nearly 65,800. Bay of Quinte employers received $709,069 dollars to create 272 new job opportunities for our students.
Since 2007, CSJ has helped approximately 330,000 students, and counting, across the country. When young Canadians are able to secure work experience and build their skills, they too can count on being part of building a better and brighter future.
“Our government is committed to our plan to give Canadian youth the tools and supports they need to succeed, and Canada Summer Jobs is a big part of that plan. I invite all students who are looking for a summer job to take advantage of this opportunity to develop their skills, gain valuable work experience and earn money,” stated Patty Hajdu, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour.
