Wage subsidies will be available for Summer 2018 and Summer 2019 for Canadian municipalities, Indigenous communities and other sector organizations to hire Youth for Green Jobs
The Canadian Parks and Recreation Association (CPRA) has officially entered into an agreement with the Government of Canada to administer elements of the Summer Work Experience Green Jobs Initiative. Specifically, CPRA will administer this program through municipalities and other sector partners.
Wage subsidies (50%) will be available for 2018 and 2019 summer for municipalities and other organizations to hire Youth for Green Jobs
In the federal budget 2017, the government announced additional investments to expand employment opportunities for young Canadians. Part of this commitment was to create 15,000 new ‘green’ jobs for young Canadians.
CPRA is finalizing an agreement with the federal government to administer the program amongst municipalities and other sector partners (non-profit parks organizations, conservation authorities)
I am writing to you on behalf of the Canadian Parks and Recreation Association (CPRA), a national organization dedicated to realizing the full potential of parks and recreation as a contributor to community health and vibrancy.
