The Canada Summer Job Grant (CSJ) Program can provide a wage subsidy of 50 per cent to employers who hire anyone aged 15 to 30. To qualify, the business must employ fewer than 50 full-time employees.

Previously restricted to students, the requirements have been eased for 2019 and grant monies allocated under the 2018 federal budget.

The new hire can start as early ad April 23 (and as late as July 23) and work until Sept. 1. Positions can also be full-time, working up to 40 hours per week. 

Landscape Ontario urges all members to consider taking advantage of this valuable gift.

The application deadline is Friday, Jan. 25, 2019.
