January 26 deadline to apply for Canada Summer Jobs funding

Do you plan on hiring a student for the summer 2018? The federal government’s Canada Summer Jobs program provides funding to help employers create summer job opportunities for students.

It is designed to focus on local priorities, while helping both students and their communities. As a public sector employer, the University of Windsor is eligible to receive funding for up to 50 per cent of minimum hourly wage for positions between 30 and 40 hours per week for six to16 weeks over the summer.

The Office of Career Development and Experiential Learning will work in partnership with the Department of Finance to coordinate one Canada Summer Jobs application on behalf of the University of Windsor to include all of the individual job proposals received by the internal deadline.

The deadline to submit a proposal and have it included in the University of Windsor application is Friday, January 26. Faculty and staff interested in hiring a summer student can find more detailed information about the criteria and access the online job proposal form on the Office of Career Development and Experiential Learning’s website.

All applications for positions at the University of Windsor must follow this process so that they may be signed by someone with the authority to enter an agreement on behalf of the University. Note: this program is not the same as the Student Experience Program funded by the provincial government. Information about that program will be posted as it becomes available.

An information session to review the application process and answer questions is set for Wednesday, January 17, at 10 a.m. in room 100, Joyce Entrepreneurship Centre — interested faculty and staff can register online.
