Ruby Sahota, the Member of Parliament for Brampton North, knows that young
people across Canada – particularly those facing barriers to employment – have been acutely
affected by the loss of jobs caused by the pandemic. Recognizing that the energy and talent of
young people is a powerful engine for our economic recovery, the Federal Liberal government is
working with employers across the country to help them find meaningful, high-quality jobs.
“I am proud to announce that this year, through the Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) program, more
than 380 employment opportunities are available to youth in Brampton North,” said MP Sahota.
“These jobs, as well as the more than 140,000 employment opportunities, created through the
CSJ program across Canada can be found on jobbank.gc.ca/youth and the Job Bank mobile app
for young people between the ages of 15 and 30.”
This year, CSJ is prioritizing projects that support youth who have not completed high school or
who are not currently enrolled in an education or training program, as well as Black, Indigenous
and racialized young people, youth with disabilities, and youth from the LGBTQ2+ community.
By providing all youth equitable opportunities to develop their skills, CSJ can help them to
succeed in the job market.
This investment builds on the government’s ongoing actions taken to support all Canadians, as
highlighted in Budget 2022, which is about growing Canada’s economy, creating good jobs, and
building a Canada where nobody gets left behind.
