Get funding to hire young Canadians for summer jobs in 2018

Employers can now submit funding applications for Canada Summer Jobs 2018

GATINEAU, QC, Dec. 19, 2017 /CNW/ – Canada’s future prosperity depends on young Canadians getting the education and experience they’ll need to succeed in their careers, keeping our economy growing and our middle class thriving.

Today, the Honourable Patty Hajdu, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour, announced that the employer application period for the 2018 Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) program is now open. Small businesses with 50 or fewer employees, not-for-profit employers and public sector organizations that can provide quality summer jobs for students are invited to apply for funding from the Government of Canada to hire students for next summer.

The Canada Summer Jobs program creates summer job opportunities for full-time students aged 15 to 30, allowing them to develop their skills, get meaningful work experience and earn money to pay for next year’s tuition.

Employers are invited to submit applications that complement this year’s national priorities:

  • Employers who intend to hire youth who are in underrepresented groups, including new immigrant youth/refugees,
  • Indigenous youth, youth with disabilities and visible minorities;
  • Small businesses, in recognition of their contribution to the creation of jobs;
  • Organizations that support opportunities for official language minority communities;
  • Organizations that provide services and/or supports the LGBTQ2 community; and
  • Organizations that provide opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) and
  • Information and Communications Technology (ICT), particularly for women.

    Employers are encouraged to submit a 2018 Canada Summer Jobs funding application online by February 2, 2018. For more information and to apply for funding, please visit Canada.ca/Canada-summer-jobs or visit a Service Canada Centre.

The City of Toronto is holding an open house on the proposed Downtown Plan, where you can drop by to gather information, speak with staff and share comments.

The proposed Downtown Plan will serve as a blueprint to guide growth in the heart of Toronto and the development of infrastructure to support it over the next 25 years. The Plan seizes on the opportunities that come with intensification, while addressing the challenges often associated with growth. To guide implementation, the Downtown Plan will include five supporting Infrastructure Strategies that address parks and public realm, mobility, community services and facilities, energy, and water.

This open house will provide an overview of the proposed Downtown Plan and the five Infrastructure Strategies. Please drop in at any time, share your thoughts, and learn more about how the plan for our growing Downtown will improve liveability for all Torontonians.

Treaties Recognition Week

Treaties Recognition Week

The CityPlace Residents Association is pleased to support the commemoration November 5-11 as Treaties Recognition Week.

A Traditional Territory Land Acknowledgement of the Indigenous First Nations, Metis and Inuit presence through the creation of a miniature village with longhouses, teepees and more is located in the CityPlace Community near the planters on the sidewalk by Jumblies Theatre 132 Fort York (between Dan Leckie Way and Queens Wharf Rd).

We were made to understand that “the miniature village was created a few years ago by Ojibway artist Philip Cote with diverse CityPlace community members of all ages. It was a way for people to chat and learn some Indigenous history while making art. [Jumblies Theatre] used the village in many performances, events, photographs and installations.”

As a fitting way to commemorate Treaties Recognition Week, we are calling for the installation of a Traditional Territory Land Acknowledgement plaque in Canoe Landing Park.
