Canada Summer Jobs 2022 - What's New?

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.

In the context of COVID-19, employers are responsible for ensuring health and safety measures are in place and are in accordance with municipal, provincial and federal public health guidance.

Please note: some exceptions may apply if you will be engaging a student as an independent contractor.
