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 June to August.
