As young people in southeast Manitoba navigate a challenging job market due to COVID-19, Ted Falk, MP for Provencher, highlights youth employment opportunities through the Canada Summer Jobs Program.

“Right now, many young people are looking for safe job opportunities where they can develop their skills and earn a wage,” said Falk. “Through the Canada Summer Jobs program, hundreds of positions are available to youth here in southeast Manitoba.”

Part of the Youth Employment and Skills Strategy, the Canada Summer Jobs program creates opportunities for youth to gain the skills and experience they need to successfully transition to the labour market. The program creates paid work opportunities for young Canadians between the ages of 15 and 30 they can grow professionally and improve their skills in the not-for-profit, small business, and public sectors.

“For the summer of 2021, 400 jobs with 180 businesses and organizations are available in Provencher through the Canada Summer Jobs program,” said Falk. “I encourage youth to take advantage of these opportunities to develop their skills and help them build their resumes.”
