Langley youth to get more job opportunities this summer

January 14, 2022

Langley youth hoping to secure a summer job this year might have 100,000 opportunities from which to choose.

The federal government announced the 2022 Canada Summer Jobs (CSJ) initiative, and Liberal John Aldag, Cloverdale-Langley City MP, expected that the program will create close to 200 jobs in his constituency alone and the same in the Langley-Aldergrove riding. The government’s goal nationwide is 100,000 jobs for young people.

Under the initiative, public and private sector employers will be reimbursed up to 50 per cent of B.C.’s minimum wage while not-for-profits can claim 100 per cent.

Only organizations with 50 or fewer full-time employees are eligible to apply for the funding, which will support youth aged 15 to 30 across the nation. Aldag’s office said that the MP is creating awareness about the program within the business community and encouraging anyone with questions to reach out to his office.
