The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on young job seekers, with marginalized youth continuing to be among those most disproportionately impacted. Canada’s employers are also facing extraordinary challenges hiring the staff that they need to help recover from the economic crisis caused by COVID-19.  That is why the Government of Canada is taking action to ensure that Canadian employers and young people have the supports they need to succeed, which is key to economic recovery.

During the summer of 2021, more than 600 hundred jobs were created in Guelph through the program.  The CSJ program has helped countless youth  gain valuable work experience, improve their skills and support key community organizations.

The application portal is now open for employers until January 25, 2022.  Employers interested in applying for CSJ 2022 funding can submit their applications electronically via either the online fillable application or the Grants and Contributions Online Service.  The online fillable application is the fastest way for employers to complete an application online without having to create an account.
