KAWARTHA LAKES: Local MP Jamie Schmale is still encouraging local employers to apply for summer help through the 'Canada Summer Jobs' program. Those interested in applying have until January 20th, 2017 to submit their applications.
Canada Summer Jobs provides funding to not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses with 50 or fewer 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.
“I encourage small businesses, and organizations to apply for funding. This program can benefit both employers and students looking to gain experience while earning money for school,” said Schmale. “Last summer, $680,255 was received in Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock and dispersed to over 97 different employers for a total of 256 youth jobs.”
