Service Canada: Employers and Students in New Brunswick See Results from Canada Summer Jobs

SAINT JOHN, NEW BRUNSWICK--(Marketwire - July 6, 2007) - Students and employers alike in Saint John will benefit from funding of $13,761 to the Hammond River Angling Association under the Canada Summer Jobs initiative. Rob Moore, Member of Parliament for Fundy Royal, made the announcement today on behalf of the Honourable Monte Solberg, Minister of Human Resources and Social Development.

"Canada's New Government is committed to helping young people acquire the skills, knowledge and experience they need to prepare for their future," Mr. Moore said. "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, provide employment to students who face barriers to finding jobs, and give them an opportunity to gain experience they might not otherwise get.

Service Canada brings Government of Canada services and benefits together in a single delivery network. 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.
