Canada Summer Jobs 2018

Canada Summer Jobs 2018 Program Information

The federal government’s Canada Summer Jobs provides funding to help employers create summer job opportunities for students. It is designed to focus on local priorities, while helping both students and their communities. The University of Windsor will submit one coordinated Canada Summer Jobs application in 2018 that will include all of the individual job proposals received by the University of Windsor’s internal deadline. The application process will be coordinated by Career Development & Experiential Learning in partnership with the Department of Finance.

How to apply for funding for summer students to be hired at the University of Windsor:

  • Application deadline is January 26th, 2018
  • Job proposals may be submitted to Career Development & Experiential Learning using the Online Job Proposal Form
    • If you plan on requesting funding for more than one position, you will need to fill out a new survey for each position.
  • Funding decisions will be made and communicated in April and students hired are eligible to work up until September 1st.
  • Funding may be approved for up to $7/hr (50% of Ontario minimum wage) for 30-40 hours per week for 6-16 weeks between April 23 and September 1.

***All applications for positions at the University of Windsor must follow this process so that they may be submitted to Service Canada by someone with the authority to enter an agreement on behalf of the University.
