Local Revelstoke employers looking to hire students this summer can still apply for the Canada Summer Jobs Program. The deadline has been extended until Sunday, February 3, 2019.
Employers can seek various amounts of wage funding for their summer hires. Not-for-profit employers are eligible to receive up to 100 percent funding for the provincial minimum hourly wage.
Private and public sector employers, with 50 or fewer full-time employees, can receive funding for up to 50 percent of the provincial minimum hourly wage.
These subsidies can be incredibly helpful to local employers looking for extra summer employees. For more information on the Canada Summer Jobs Program, including the eligibility criteria and application guide, visit Canada.ca/Canada-summer-jobs, a Service Canada Office or call 1-800-935-5555.
