Delivered by Employment and Social Development Canada and falling under the Youth Employment Strategy, CSJ is meant to help young people aged 15 to 30 years gain the skills, abilities and work experience they need to find and maintain quality employment.

• The hiring period for youth will start on April 23, 2019 and end on July 23, 2019.

CSJ 2019 includes new expanded eligibility to include all youth aged 15 to 30, which means youth who are not students are now also eligible. This change has been made to complement the Government’s renewal of the Youth Employment Strategy (YES), announced in Budget 2018. Note that International students are not eligible participants.

Eligible Canadian employers are from the not-for-profit, public and private sectors. Private sector employers must have 50 or fewer full-time employees across Canada to be eligible. Full-time employees are those working 30 hours or more per week.
