Canada Summer Jobs Grant
Dear BIA members,
For those looking for some 'extra hands' but without the funds to make that happen, you may be interested to learn more about the Canada Summer Jobs Grant. The Canada Summer Jobs Grant provides wage subsidy for businesses willing to provide employment to students, and for positions that would otherwise not be created without the subsidy (i.e. you can only receive funding for positions that would not exist without financial assistance). The deadline to apply is February 26. More information can be found below, or by visiting Canada Summer Jobs website.
If you have any questions please contact Canada Summer Jobs:
