(Above) Last summer, local member of Parliament Rob Oliphant visited The Salvation Army's territorial headquarters in Toronto where he was thanked, along with the federal government, for supporting the Army through the Canada Summer Jobs program. With that funding, THQ was able to hire three summer students, pictured here with Mr. Oliphant: Valerie Tan, Bria Haywood and Diondra Ascenuik.

Would you like to engage Canadian youth aged 15 to 30 to make a difference in your community this summer?

Do you have a need for additional staff and the ability to provide high-quality work experience for youth?

If so, consider applying for Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) funding for Summer 2020.

Did you know?

In 2019, The Salvation Army was awarded over $800,000 to hire more than 150 youth in 70 communities and 80 ministry units across the country.

Youth made a significant contribution to the mission and work of The Salvation Army, and The Salvation Army played an important role in helping young Canadians receive high-quality work experience and develop and improve their skills.

Local members of Parliament (MPs) play a role in deciding who receives funding in their ridings.

As such, we encourage ministry unit leads to send a letter to their MP once they've applied to let them know of their application, and invite the MP to visit the ministry unit to learn more about the work of The Salvation Army in their riding. We also encourage ministry units that receive funding to send a letter to their MP to thank them for their support, and invite them to visit the ministry unit and meet the youth during the summer.
