Helping Young Canadians Succeed
The Government is committed to supporting opportunities for young Canadians by ensuring that they have the skills and experience they need to succeed.
Budget 2016 will ensure that post-secondary education remains affordable for students from low- and middle-income families and that debt loads are manageable.
In addition to doubling the size of the Canada Summer Jobs program, the Government is investing in young Canadians by making it easier for them to join the workforce through enhancements to the Youth Employment Strategy and investments to strengthen co-op and on-the-job learning opportunities.
