MP Sahota: More than 380 Canada Summer Jobs Opportunities Available to Youth in Brampton North
02/05/2022 – Ruby Sahota, the Member of Parliament for Brampton North, knows that young people across Canada – particularly those facing barriers to employment – have been acutely affected by the loss of jobs caused by the pandemic. Recognizing that the energy and talent of young people is a powerful engine for our economic recovery, the Federal Liberal government is working with employers across the country to help them find meaningful, high-quality jobs.
“I am proud to announce that this year, through the Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) program, more than 380 employment opportunities are available to youth in Brampton North,” said MP Sahota. “These jobs, as well as the more than 140,000 employment opportunities, created through the CSJ program across Canada can be found on jobbank.gc.ca/youth and the Job Bank mobile app for young people between the ages of 15 and 30.”
This year, CSJ is prioritizing projects that support youth who have not completed high school or who are not currently enrolled in an education or training program, as well as Black, Indigenous and racialized young people, youth with disabilities, and youth from the LGBTQ2+ community. By providing all youth equitable opportunities to develop their skills, CSJ can help them to succeed in the job market.
This investment builds on the government’s ongoing actions taken to support all Canadians, as highlighted in Budget 2022, which is about growing Canada’s economy, creating good jobs, and building a Canada where nobody gets left behind.
