Canada Summer Jobs
Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) is an initiative of the Student Work Experience Program delivered by Service Canada. The program provides wage subsidies to help Canadian employers create career-related summer jobs for students between the ages of 15 and 30 at the start of employment. Assistance under the program will help fund employment opportunities for Memorial students from May to August.
CSJ 2013 has ended. Thank you to everyone who participated. Information regarding CSJ 2014 will be available in January.
As Memorial is committed to principles of student career development and employment equity, all approved CSJ positions will be advertised though my.mun.ca. Job postings will be based on the tasks and responsibilities outlined by the grant holder and will take place upon approval from Service Canada. A downloadable package consisting of the resumes received will be emailed to the grant holder after being posted for a minimum of three working days.
Eligible student participants must:
- be between 15 and 30 years of age (inclusive) at the start of the employment;
- have been registered as a full-time student during the preceeding academic year;
- intend to return to school on a full-time basis during the next academic year;
- be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident or person on whom refugee protection has been conferred under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act*;
- be legally entitled to work according to relevant provincial/territorial legislation and regulations;
- not be working 30 hours or more per week at another job;
- and not be working more than 40 hours per week under any combination of Memorial University employment.
*Foreign students are not eligible.
Please Note: An individual employed full-time on a CSJ placement cannot also be a full-time student as defined by the Registrar's Office during the same period.
