Goderich, ON—Ben Lobb, Member of Parliament for Huron-Bruce, today encouraged employers to apply for funding through the Canada Summer Jobs program to help create student jobs.

Canada Summer Jobs helps students gain the skills and experience they need to be successful, while earning money for the upcoming school year. The program also supports local community priorities such as agriculture, infrastructure and arts and culture through the hiring of students.

Funding will be available to not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers and private sector employers. Young people aged 15 to 30 years who are full-time students and intend to return to school in the following school year can qualify for these job opportunities.

Employers can apply online at www.servicecanada.gc.ca/csj or print an application from the website. They can also get an application by visiting any Service Canada Centre. Applications must be submitted between January 4 and February 26, 2016.

To help employers complete their application, the Canada Summer Jobs Applicant Guide is available online, by calling 1-800-935-5555, or by visiting any Service Canada Centre.
