Canada Summer Jobs study sparks optimism for increased funding, greater flexibility for non-profits, small businesses

Organizations say the current program needs to let them know earlier in the year if they are approved for participation

Why It Matters

The Canadian Summer Jobs program has created hundreds of thousands of jobs for youth since it was launched in the 1990s. A revamp of the program has the potential to make the program easier to access and to reduce the burden of applying and reporting for non-profits and small businesses.
