The annual call for applications for the Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) program is open and will remain open until January 12, 2023. This program provides funding of up to 100% of the provincial minimum hourly wage for Summer Jobs. The criteria are based on three key questions of readiness to:

  • create quality work experiences for youth?
  • provide youth with opportunities to develop and improve their skills?
  • respond to national and local priorities to improve access to the labour market for youth who face unique barriers?

Information on the program, criteria and application process can be found at the following site: Applicant Guide.

The diocese, program groups and parishes have successfully utilized this program in the past. If interested, review the information on the Service Canada site and contact the Financial Officer (Alex Pierson) at
