Why should I apply?
As a F.UN program employer you will have the opportunity to employ youth who have received training on (1) employability skills, including soft skills such as communication collaboration and problem solving (2) technology and digital skills, and (3) using Prepr’s signature PIE tool, which addresses three essential skills gaps facing the business services sector today: Expertise in innovation, business development (entrepreneurship, sales, commercialization) and project management
If you have applied for the Canada Summer Jobs program, you can benefit from the temporary changes that were announced in April to help employers hire summer staff and provide youth, between 15 and 30 years of age, access to the jobs they need so they can continue to deliver essential services during this unprecedented time. The temporary changes to the program for this year include:
- An increase to the wage subsidy, so that private and public sector employers can also receive up to 100 percent of the provincial or territorial minimum hourly wage for each employee
- An extension to the end date for employment to February 28, 2021
- Allowing employers to adapt their projects and job activities to support essential services
- Allowing employers to hire staff on a part-time basis
