Employers and Students in Alberta See Results From Canada Summer Jobs

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - June 9, 2007) - Students and employers alike in Calgary will benefit from $112,675 in funding going to the Nose Creek Sports Recreation Association under the Canada Summer Jobs initiative. Art Hanger, Member of Parliament for Calgary Northeast made the announcement today on behalf of the Honourable Monte Solberg, Minister of Human Resources Development.

"Canada's New Government is committed to helping young people acquire the skills, knowledge and experience they need to prepare for their future," said Mr. Hanger. "Canada Summer Jobs is helping tens of thousands of students who need it the most get high-quality, career-related summer job experience."

Canada Summer Jobs is focused on encouraging not-for-profit, public sector, and smaller private sector employers with 50 or fewer employees to create jobs that not only meet their needs, but benefit young people who need jobs the most. Many of the jobs funded are 40-50 percent longer in duration, and provide employment to students who face barriers to finding jobs, giving them an opportunity to gain experience they might not otherwise get.

It provides Canadians with one-stop, personalized service they can access however they choose-by phone at 1 800 O-Canada, Internet at servicecanada.gc.ca, or in person at Service Canada Centres across the country.
