Canada Summer Jobs Eligibility: 

“To be eligible, youth must be:

  • 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. 


*Please note: 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.


FACTSnet 2020 Focus:

The 2020 focus is on developing young adult leadership to assist other youth and young adults (15-30) including: Newcomers to Canada, Indigenous People, Visible Minorities and people with disabilities.
