The federal government is looking for applications from local businesses for the Canada Summer Jobs program.
The program allows not-for-profit organizations, public sector employees and small businesses, with 50 employees or less, to hire full-time summer workers. The program provides work opportunities for youth, between the ages of 15 to 30 who intend to return to school in the next year, with jobs that focus on the priorities of their local communities.
Priorities for the Kamloops-Thompson-Nicola region include businesses and organizations that focus on special, local events, locations, and sector priorities.
The government is also seeking applications from a number of national priorities including: employers who help welcome Syrian refuges and students, Indigenous people, cultural and creative industries and small businesses.
Applications will be accepted from January 4th until February 26th 2016. Accepted applicants can hire students as early as May 2016.
