Canada Summer Jobs is an initiative of the Youth Employment Strategy, which is the Government of Canada’s commitment to help young people between the ages of 15 and 30, particularly those facing barriers to employment, get the information and gain the skills, work experience and abilities they need to transition successfully into the labour market.

The program provides wage subsidies to employers from not-for-profit organizations, the public-sector, and private sector organizations with 50 or fewer full-time employees, to create quality summer work experiences for young people aged 15 to 30 years.

This year, the period to apply for Canada Summer Jobs 2019 will be Dec. 17, 2018, to Jan. 21, 2019. 

Last year the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton was successful in receiving funding for 43 of the 79 positions applied for, providing UNBF with $70,200 in funding. These successful grants contribute $140,300 in salaries to students during the summer of 2018 through this program.  

Note: Service Canada no longer requires applications to be ranked by deans. (Please do ensure that you have their authorization before submitting proposals.)

If you would like to submit an application for funding and for more information, please contact the Career Development and Employment Centre 453-4620 or via e-mail
