Federal program generates summer employment opportunities

Looking for a summer job? There is no shortage of work opportunities in the Salaberry-Suroît riding this year thanks to the federal government’s Canada Summer Jobs initiative, which will fund the creation of 367 jobs with 128 different local employers over the summer.
In a press release, MP Claude DeBellefeuille confirmed the program will be investing over $1.25 million in the region to provide work opportunities for young people between the ages of 15 and 30.

“Within the context of economic recovery, this investment is very important,” says DeBellefeuille. “It represents good news for both non-profit and private businesses in Salaberry-Suroît,” she continues, suggesting local employers are well-equipped to offer rewarding opportunities to area youth this summer while allowing them to remain close to home.

The Bloc Québécois MP chose to prioritize funding for a diversity of jobs throughout the riding, where positions are now open for day camps, in tourism-oriented businesses, restaurants, and with agricultural producers. “I wish all 367 future employees success and a great summer ahead,” says DeBellefeuille.
