**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 the 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.
These positions have been made available by the Canada Summer Grant. Preference will be given to those applicants who meet the eligibility of the grant. Eligibility is outlined as follows:
These positions are ideally suited (but not limited) to students in Communications Studies, First Nations Studies, Indigenous Governance, Environmental Studies, International Relations, Pacific Studies, Arts, or Anthropology. These positions may be partially or fully remote. We have a COVID-19 Safety Plan in place and will discuss options for in-office, hybrid, or remote work with successful candidates. Positions will begin the week of July 5, 2021 and will be 8 weeks in length at 35 hours per week. Rate of pay is $16 an hour plus MERCS (Mandatory Employee Related Costs).
