Session Wednesday to answer questions on federal summer jobs funding

An information session Wednesday, January 17, will review the application process for the Canada Summer Jobs program, which provides funding to help employers create summer job opportunities for students.

Wednesday’s session is aimed at UWindsor faculty and staff and will begin at 10 a.m. in room 100, Joyce Entrepreneurship Centre. Register online.

The program is designed to focus on local priorities; 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 to 16 weeks.

The Office of Career Development and Experiential Learning is working in partnership with the Department of Finance to co-ordinate one Canada Summer Jobs application from the University of Windsor to include all proposals received by the internal deadline.

Friday, January 26 is the deadline to submit a proposal. All applications must follow this process so that they may be signed by someone with the authority to enter an agreement on behalf of the University.
