Canada Summer Jobs Program

The annual call for Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) program launched during the week of November 20, 2023 and applications are due by January 10, 2024.

For 2024, Canada Summer Jobs is maintaining its regular parameters and will offer quality jobs during the summer season with an aim to fund over 70,000 jobs for youth.

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

Job duration must be between 6 and 16 consecutive weeks and job hours must be full time (30 to 40 hours per week).

This is your chance to provide opportunities for youth to participate in Agriculture!
