The 2021 Canada Summer Jobs program deadline is today.
The program allows employers to apply for funding to hire young people.
Federal Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Disability Inclusion, Carla Qualtrough says not-for-profit organizations and private and public sector employers who have not already applied for funding are encouraged to do so.
He says the program strives to give young Canadians between the ages of 15 and 30 paid work opportunities.
Applicants who are approved for funding will be able to hire youth as early as April 2021.
