SAINT-JEAN-CHRYSOSTOME, QC, June 11 /CNW Telbec/ - Students and employers
alike in Saint-Jean-Chrysostome will benefit from $7,778 in funding going to
l'ADOberge Chaudière-Appalaches, and $10,370 going to Festivent inc. under the
Canada Summer Jobs initiative. The Honourable Jacques Gourde, Parliamentary
Secretary to the Minister of Natural Resources and MP for
Lotbinière-Chutes-de-la-Chaudière, made the announcement today on behalf of
the Honourable Monte Solberg, Minister of Human Resources and Social
Development. Funding of $21 million is being shared among not-for-profit
groups across the province.
"Canada's New Government is committed to helping young people acquire the
skills, knowledge and experience they need to prepare for their future,"
Mr. Gourde said. "Canada Summer Jobs is helping tens of thousands of students
who need it the most get high-quality, career-related summer job experience."
Canada Summer Jobs is focused on encouraging not-for-profit, public
sector, and smaller private sector employers with 50 or fewer employees to
create jobs that not only meet their needs, but benefit young people who need
jobs the most. Many of the jobs being funded are 40-50 percent longer in
duration, provide employment to students who face barriers to finding jobs,
and give them an opportunity to gain experience they might not otherwise get.
