Canada Summer Jobs program: 250 jobs in Pontiac
Here in the Pontiac, I am happy that many employers are creating opportunities for young Canadians with funding from Canada Summer Jobs. In total, the federal government approved 240 summer jobs across the Pontiac. This represents an investment of more than $718,000 for our large riding!
It’s essential that young Canadians have access to meaningful work from the start of their careers. This is especially true in West Quebec’s rural towns where employment opportunities are scarce. Last year, the Government nearly doubled the number of jobs available through this program. Since its inception in 2007, CSJ has helped approximately 330,000 students in the Pontiac.
I encourage all young people to visit Canada.ca/canada-summer-jobs to find out which employers in their communities are hiring.
