Harper government creates summer jobs for students in Barrie
May 23, 2012
Barrie, Ontario—Students in Barrie will have an opportunity to gain valuable work experience and earn money for the upcoming school year thanks to the federal Canada Summer Jobs initiative. Patrick Brown, Member of Parliament for Barrie made the announcement today on behalf of the Honourable Diane Finley, Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development.
“The Harper government’s top priority is creating jobs, economic growth and long-term prosperity for all Canadians,” said MP Brown. “Through Canada Summer Jobs, we are helping employers in Barrie create summer job opportunities for students, while strengthening our community’s economy.”
MP Brown announced over $264,000 in Canada Summer Jobs funding to hire 77 students. The funding will enable the students to gain the skills and experience they need to be successful, both now and in the future.
Canada Summer Jobs is an important part of our government’s Youth Employment Strategy (YES). With annual funding of more than $300 million, YES helps youth, particularly those facing barriers to employment, obtain career information, develop employment skills, find jobs and stay employed.
Economic Action Plan 2012 will provide an additional $50 million over two years to enhance YES so that more young people can gain tangible skills and experience. This funding will focus on connecting young Canadians with jobs in fields that are in high demand. Additionally, the Harper government permanently increased the annual budget for Canada Summer Jobs by $10 million in 2011.
MP Brown said “Today’s students are tomorrow’s workforce, so by investing in them we are helping contribute to Canada’s long-term growth, competitiveness and overall prosperity.”
