Applications have now opened for Canada Summer Jobs 2018 that are offered by the Government of Canada. This is an initiative by the government to assist students to identify paid jobs throughout the summer season.

Canada Summer Jobs 2018 is an initiative of the Summer Work Experience program. The program operates as a wage subsidy for employers so that they can afford to offer employment to secondary and post secondary students while also benefiting local communities and organizations as well. This unique opportunity not only allows for students to gain experience that they would not usually be available to them, but gives the students an opportunity to seek meaningful employment specific to their own interests and fields..

The website of Canadian government states that Canada Summer Jobs 2018 offers to fund to not-for-profit organizations small businesses and public-sector firms with 50 or fewer full-time employees to create summer job opportunities for young people aged 15 to 30 years who are full-time students intending to return to their studies in the next school year.

By way of five national priorities, Canada Summer Jobs 2018 supports the following:

  • Employers who intend to hire youth who are in underrepresented groups, including new immigrant youth/refugees, Indigenous youth, youth with disabilities and visible minorities.
  • Small businesses, in recognition of their contribution to the creation of jobs
  • Organizations that support opportunities for official language minority communities
  • Organizations that provide services and/or supports for the LGBTQ2 community
  • Organization that support opportunities in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and information and communications and technology (ICT), particularly for women.

Applicant students must either have citizenship of Canada or PR or Protected status as refugees. They must also be entitled by the law to work in Canada.

The important feature of Summer Jobs 2018 is that its objective is to offer opportunities to students to have jobs all through the summer season. It is beneficial not only to the students but also to the communities too. The application process is tailored to the Government of Canada. It believes that these jobs will help the communities. Jobs will also be created at the most needed places.

In delivering on these objectives, the Government of Canada seeks to ensure that youth job opportunities funded by the Canada Summer Jobs 2018 program take place in an environment that respects the rights of all Canadians.

The last date for submitting the application for the Canada Summer Jobs 2018 is 2 February 2018.
