CSJ is a program under the Youth Employment and Skills Strategy, which aims to provide flexible and holistic services to help all young Canadians develop the skills and gain paid work experience to successfully transition into the labour market.
The program provides wage subsidies to employers from not-for-profit organizations, the public sector, and private sector organizations with 50 or fewer full-time employees, to create quality summer work experiences for young people aged 15 to 30 years.
The Government has committed to create 100,000 CSJ jobs for youth in 2022 to help ensure that the program remains responsive to the employment needs of youth and employers. For 2022, CSJ is returning to its regular parameters and will offer quality jobs over the summer months. The jobs will need to end by September 3, 2022. Jobs will need to be full time with a minimum of 30 hours a week and a duration of at least 6 weeks.
Looking forward in 2022 to a more robust summer of ministry, the CSJ program is an excellent opportunity for you to hire a young person to work and serve alongside you in your community.
