To be eligible for the Canada Summer Jobs program, youth must:

    – be between 15 and 30 years of age at the start of the employment*

    – be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or person to whom refugee protection has been conferred under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act for the duration of the employment**;

    – have a valid Social Insurance Number at the start of employment and be legally entitled to work in Canada in accordance with relevant provincial or territorial legislation and regulations.


*The youth must be 15 years of age at the beginning of the employment period. The youth may be more than 30 years of age at the end of the employment period as long as the youth was 30 at the beginning of the employment period.

**International students are not eligible participants. International students include anyone who is temporarily in Canada for studies and who is not a Canadian citizen, permanent resident, or person who has been granted refugee status in Canada. Youth awaiting a refugee status ruling, as well as those who hold a temporary visitor visa, youth visa or work visa are ineligible. As the objective of Canada Summer Jobs program is to support youth entering the Canadian labour market, the temporary nature of an international student’s time in Canada does not allow for a long-term connection to the labour market.

The UWC will strictly follow all public health guidelines and directives from federal, provincial and local authorities in implementing the Canada Summer Jobs program.

This year all Canada Summer Job positions are available in the Canada Jobs Bank. We would encourage eligible applicants to search through the many Ukrainian Canadian community organizations which have received funding by reviewing the list here.
