Crowfoot MP Kevin Sorenson invites local employers to apply for funding through the Canada Summer Jobs program to help create jobs for students this summer.

“Every year, we try to focus on local priorities, while achieving tangible results for both students and their communities through this federal initiative,” Sorenson said in a news release.

“It works in local economies throughout our large riding.”

The Canada Summer Jobs initiative provides funding to not-for-profit, public-sector and small private-sector employers with 50 or fewer employees.

It creates summer job opportunities for young people 15 to 30 years of age who are full-time students intending to return to their studies in the next school year.

Employers can apply online at www.servicecanada.gc.ca/csj2013 or print an application from the website. They can also obtain an application by visiting any Service Canada Centre.

Applications must be submitted between Feb. 1 and Feb. 28.

“Not-for-profit organizations, public-sector employers and small businesses create these high-quality summer- job opportunities for young people aged 15 to 30 years,” Sorenson said.

“These full-time students who intend to return to their studies in the next school year can return home for the summer months — and have a summer job. This is important to families in our riding and across Canada.”
