Application deadline approaching for summer job funding

There may still be snow outside, but now’s the time for Brock employees to start thinking about summer — at least their summer hiring plans.

Faculty and staff interested in hiring students for summer positions are encouraged to apply for the Canada Summer Jobs wage subsidy through a new internal process at Brock.

In an effort to ensure applications receive the best consideration for funding, the offices of Government and Community Relations and Talent Acquisition will review each application against criteria set out by Canada Summer Jobs and provide feedback, if needed.

Funding requests for positions within Brock University should be emailed to by Monday, Jan. 22. They will then be centrally submitted to Service Canada in advance of the program deadline of Feb. 2. As in previous years, individual units will hear back directly from Service Canada regarding the status of their applications beginning in April.

Brock employees interested in learning more about the Canada Summer Jobs program are encouraged to visit the Government of Canada’s website. Employees are also welcome to attend a Canada Summer Jobs information session hosted by the office of Niagara Centre MP Vance Badawey Friday, Jan. 19 from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Welland City Hall Community Room. Advance registration is required.

Through Canada Summer Jobs funding, Brock is able to support students financially and provide them with work experience that complements their education.
