Canada Summer Jobs 2018

713 Calgary employers approved for funding to hire students

Since we were elected in 2015, we’ve nearly doubled the number of student jobs funded through the Canada Summer Jobs program.

In Calgary, 713 nonprofits and small businesses have been approved to receive federal funding to hire summer students — this means 2,495 jobs have been approved. The funding helps employers get the staff they need, and helps students gain skills and save money for the school year ahead.

Here in the riding of Calgary Centre, we’re supporting jobs for 260 students in 170 local organizations (scroll down for the list). From kids’ camp leaders to law students to roles helping people with a disability, the jobs offer a variety of experiences for students ages 15 to 30.

How to apply for a job, as a student
For details on available jobs, contact the organizations listed below or visit a job search site at:
