Dear Campus Colleagues,
We are writing to announce the December 2 launch of the 2014 Canada Summer Jobs Program. The Canada Summer Jobs program provides funding for not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers (including most UBC faculties and departments) and private small businesses with 50 or fewer employees to create summer jobs for full-time students. Canada Summer Jobs provides young people aged 15 to 30 the opportunity to gain meaningful work and life experience while supporting community-based initiatives.
The wage subsidy is calculated based on a percentage of BC’s minimum hourly wage (up to 50% for public and private sector employers and up to 100% for not-for-profit employers). The minimum wage in BC is currently $10.25 per hour (as of May 1, 2012). Jobs must be full-time (30 to 40 hours per week) and 6 to 16 weeks in duration.
This year, the application window will be open earlier and longer to allow you to be notified of your application status earlier than in years past. Applications for Canada Summer Jobs 2014 will be accepted from December 2, 2013 until January 10, 2014.
For general questions about Canada Summer Jobs and the application process, contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604-822-8278. For specific questions about completing the application or your application status, please contact Service Canada’s helpline at 1-800-935-5555 or visit the Canada Summer Jobs website.
Please share this e-mail with any colleagues who may be interested in hiring a student through this program.
