COVID-19: BUSINESS RESOURCES

Ensuring that young people and Canadian employers have the supports they need to succeed and stay strong is key to driving our communities forward as we begin economic recovery.

Today, the Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Disability Inclusion, Carla Qualtrough, announced that the employer application period for the 2021 Canada Summer Jobs program is being extended until February 3, 2021, to allow more employers to apply for funding to hire young people. Not-for-profit organizations and private and public sector employers who have not already applied for funding are encouraged to do so today. []
